The evening will be moderated by GCDC trustee, Kathryn Bishop, who will delve into each of their stories from the past decade, exploring their design ethos, fine craftsmanship and sharing their advice and hopes for the UK industry as it looks to the future.

Furthermore, GCDC is currently hosting a ‘Retrospective’ exhibition at the Goldsmiths Centre, which features designs from last year’s award winners.
