Goldsmiths’ Jewellery Series – Pt 1

Rue Pigalle and Goldsmiths’ Fair have collaborated to create a four-part “In Conversation” lecture series that explores the stories of survival, endurance and innovation from the 14th-century jewellery world in London to the unprecedented hardships today’s makers are contending with due to COVID-19.

In the first talk in the four part series, Isabelle Fish co-hosted a virtual lecture series with Goldsmiths’ Company librarian Eleni Bide who provided an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Goldsmiths’ Hall.



Join us for part two, ‘Women in Silversmithing’, with Sophia Tobin, who will discuss the history of women in silversmithing and their fight to be at the bench – a historic tale about the lengths women had to go to in order to achieve equal rights in a craft dominated by men.
