We are pleased to announce that we will be launching the first ever online Goldsmiths’ Fair this autumn, 24 Sept – 6 Oct 2020, providing a platform for our exhibitors and thousands of visitors from around the world, old and new, to enjoy the extraordinary works created by a selection of the best jewellers and silversmiths in the UK today.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to accelerate our plans to expand the Fair online, making the annual physical event and our exhibitors more accessible to more people from across the UK and internationally, opening up new avenues of education and conversation, and ensuring that our exhibitors have this vital platform to encourage the recovery of their businesses. The Goldsmiths’ Company is committed to supporting our craft and trade for the long term, as we have done for the last seven centuries through some of the worst crises in our history.
Creativity is one of the most powerful and inspirational responses to a crisis and this will be reflected in the unique, contemporary, handcrafted jewellery and silver that will be available exclusively to visitors to the online Fair this September. It has never been a more important time to support our vibrant and creative industry and to promote and showcase the skills and techniques of our craft and trade, handed down over centuries.
Over 130 makers will exhibit at the online Fair this year, and we will continue to host an exciting programme of talks, events and exhibitions, all now online, which we look forward to announcing later in the summer!
