Winners of the bursary get a free stand at Goldsmiths’ Fair, a £1,500 grant to help prepare for the Fair, and an optional interest free silver bullion loan of up to £3,000.

The graduates also receive mentoring from the Goldsmiths’ Centre, helping them to develop business plans and prepare for large exhibitions. The graduates are also given advice on their social media and web presence, as well as pricing strategies.

  • a free stand at Goldsmiths’ Fair
    • a £1,500 grant to help prepare towards the Fair
    • an optional interest-free silver bullion loan of up to £3,000
