L’ÉCOLE’s programmes are open to all levels of expertise  

Van Cleef & Arpels’ L’ÉCOLE has now permanently extended its offer in Dubai following successful travelling school sessions in the Middle East, and previously established schools in Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.

This autumn, L’ECOLE will open a permanent campus in Dubai’s dynamic Design District (d3), offering a comprehensive education in fine jewellery and watchmaking. This expansion promises a holistic immersion experience, offering a variety of classes and engaging discussions while also introducing a fresh avenue for budding designers in the Arab world.

With up to 14 adult courses, the curriculum spans a wide spectrum, encompassing subjects ranging from the historical evolution of jewellery to the enchanting realm of gemstones and the artistry behind jewellery craftsmanship.

Founded in 2012 in Paris with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts, spreads jewellery culture to the widest possible audience. It prides itself on being open to all levels, from beginners and collectors to curious and young people.

As Khadija Al Bastaki, Senior Vice President of d3, told Fast Company, “The arrival of institutions like L’École propels these efforts to new heights, offering creative minds a golden opportunity to refine their skills and sculpt original, groundbreaking designs.” Find out more here
