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.”

Di’s teaching was the right fit for me...her knowledge and expertise was so well communicated and I feel her supportive hand - and eye - really helped to develop my confidence with the soldering process. Thank you!!!

This was an inspiring weekend course. Di Appleby is a wonderful teacher, who explained and demonstrated soldering and other techniques very clearly. She had infinite patience! The techniques covered far more than soldering. I would recommend the course to students at any level of expertise. Brian
