Rich design phases such as Renaissance, Medieval, Victorian, Art Deco, Retro, Contemporary, Indian and American designs, and software and 3D printing was discussed and shown to the students.
Developing inspiration from surroundings was also one of the aspects delved by the students.
Not just designing but even manufacturing aspects were discussed at the workshop, including materials apart from the traditional metals and gems. Examples of such materials such as enamel, fiber, MOP, wood, etc were shown to the students. A detailed talk about enameling and its composition and techniques was also held for the students explaining the process from metal washing to firing for achieving color.
