Tomorrow at Goldsmiths’ Fair

At 1.30pm Janice Hosegood will talk to jewellers Romilly Saumarez Smith, Lucie Gledhill and Anna Wales about their unique working relationship.

Goldsmiths’ Fair exhibitor Romilly Saumarez Smith is a jeweller who, over the past ten years, through a neurological illness has lost the use of her hands.

Earlier this year, Romilly was announced as a finalist in the Woman’s Hour Crafts Prize.

The Woman’s Hour Craft Prize was launched in order to celebrate the most innovative and exciting craft makers in the UK, and coincides with the 70th anniversary of Woman’s Hour. The 12 finalists were selected from almost 1,500 applications, and their works will feature in a Woman’s Hour Craft Prize exhibition at the V&A from Thursday 7 September 2017 to Monday 5 February 2018, followed by a UK-wide tour. The winner will be selected by Rosy Greenlees (Executive Director, Crafts Council), Tristram Hunt (Director of the V&A), and Martha Kearney (BBC journalist and broadcaster), and announced in a live broadcasted ceremony from the V&A on Wednesday 8 November 2017.
