Applications are open now for Goldsmiths’ Fair 2023, where the most respected buyers, collectors and curators of silver and jewellery – as well as the most talented UK-based craftspeople working in precious metals today – will come together at Goldsmiths’ Hall in the City of London.

The primary destination for independent jewellery and silver made in the UK, The Goldsmiths’ Company’s annual selling exhibition has been celebrating the work of craftspeople working in precious metals for over four decades.

Goldsmiths’ Fair 2023 will take place from 26 September-8 October 2023.

Notable Goldsmiths’ Fair alumni include Shaun Leane, Polly Wales, Fred Rich, Jaqueline Mina and Cassandra Goad.

Goldsmiths’ Fair offers makers the opportunity to both exhibit and sell their work to a highly engaged audience, while placing them within the canon of the UK’s most celebrated jewellers and silversmiths.

Amongst the stands provided, Goldsmiths’ Fair also offers up to 10 graduate exhibitor places (with bursaries) to enable new craftspeople the chance to exhibit for the first time.

The bursary covers stand fees, allows graduates to purchase a bullion loan, entitles them to a £1,500 grant towards set up at the Fair, and provides them with business training at the Goldsmiths’ Centre.
