This will be followed by an evening with V Jewellery creative director, Laura Vann, on October 29, and talks by Butler & Wilson, Alex Monroe and Parla.

Some evenings will highlight the latest developments in technology, with Gemvision UK providing information on the latest CAD and CAM techniques.

Holts Academy’s previous programme of talks included speakers such as Bec Astley Clarke MBE, Annoushka Ducas MBE and Katie Rowland.

Holts Academy head of communications Rebecca Black, explained: “We could not be more excited about hosting this series of ‘Evenings with’ – they inspire the students and give them insight into the trade from a professional view. Technology is becoming increasingly important and if used to its full potential, can make the journey from design to manufacture extremely efficient.”

All talks will be held at Holts Academy, Kamen House, 62-66 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3GB. If you would like to book on to one of the ‘Evenings with’ contact Lili Cavaliere on
