MEET YOUR TUTOR

Diane Appleby completed her Master of Art in Gold and Silversmithing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2003. She has taught in the Jewellery and Object Design Department, Sydney Institute of Technology, Design Centre Enmore, and at the College of Fine Art, University of NSW. Diane’s catalogue of work encompasses collections for exhibition and collaborations with clients on individual pieces. “My jewellery is designed to not only catch the eye, but to also feel delightful to wear. I like to play with colour, form and texture. I choose materials for their unique character, such as stones for their luminosity, metals to encapsulate strength, and silks for their sheen and rippling texture. I enjoy creating pieces with a precious presence. “At the heart of every design is an inspiration, whether I am creating a collection for an exhibition or working with a client to create a uniquely personal piece. I find the satisfaction of bringing a concept to life from a few simple sketches to a finished form extremely exciting.”

This is a fabulous studio, kitted out with absolutely everything, Diane Appleby was extremely generous with her knowledge and flexible with her tutoring, catering to all students needs. I learnt so much and will be back for more courses. What a warm welcoming studio, thanks Brenda and Diane for a great weekend !

The 2 days of soldering learning and practice were fantastic - a total immersion in the experience and a great sharing of ideas with like-minded creative people. Diane was a great teacher who explained things clearly and provided just the right amount of support and direction to increase my confidence and skills. I highly recommend the soldering course and am eagerly looking forward to the stone setting course later in the year.
