The Goldsmiths’ Company will showcase its support service offering for emerging designers at this year’s New Designers – an annual exhibition displaying the works of recent graduates from the UK’s leading educational institutions.
In addition, The Goldsmiths’ Company has announced plans to sponsor two industry awards for participating jewellers and silversmiths. The prize includes an internship with a well-known jeweller or silversmith, plus a £500 bursary towards living expenses, a 10-year registration with the company Assay Office and a standard sponsor’s punch with two to five initials.
This year’s New Designers will display the work of over 3,000 graduate designers throughout eight ‘design zones’ – including jewellery and precious metal work.
As the longest standing sponsor of the event, The Goldsmiths’ Company will present its full range of services to guests, including training courses (such as the undergraduate summer school, ‘Getting Started’ and ‘Setting Out’), competitions, mentoring and student Assay packages.
Representatives from the Goldsmiths’ Centre and the Assay Office will also be on hand to offer advice.
Goldsmiths’ Fair 2013 graduate silversmith and 2014 exhibitor, Rebecca Hill, Goldsmiths’ Centre Setting Out resident jewellery designer, Monique Daniels, and studio jeweller Chloe Hererro, will be on hand to answer questions.
New Designers will take place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, from June 25 to June 28 2014. The Goldsmiths’ Company will be on Stand S9.
