A career in jewellery design awaits Sophie Chapman after completing an Art Foundation pathway at Reading College.
Sophie has been offered a place to study Jewellery at Goldsmiths and wants to specialise in enamelling and metal work, with a view to eventually setting up her own business.
Sophie says of her time at the college: “I completed my A-Levels but wasn’t ready to go to university yet. I was unsure about which pathway to take, and I wanted to experiment.
“I’ve enjoyed working with different mediums and doing lots of things that I hadn’t done before. Not many schools can offer the facilities that they have here.”
“I now want to go to Goldsmiths to study jewellery, in particular enamelling and metalwork. Eventually I want to progress to having my own business.”
