Week Two 5 -10 October
Goldsmiths’ Fair is recognised internationally as the premier UK showcase for contemporary jewellery and silver. Browse and learn about over 130 master craftspeople making extraordinary pieces, available to purchase directly from them.
The Fair has taken place at the magnificent Goldsmiths’ Hall, one of London’s hidden treasures, since 1982. All Fair exhibitors use exceptional handmaking skills to create their pieces, applying techniques that have been passed down over hundreds of years. Visitors can expect to find beautiful, handmade pieces all containing an element of precious metal. Behind every piece is a unique story and a unique artist.
London Craft Week
In the lead up to their festival this autumn 30 Sept - 8 Oct 2020, London Craft Week offered a glimpse into what to expect with a Virtual Preview that includes exclusive online masterclasses, demonstrations, conversations and product launches, as well as virtual behind-the-scenes exhibition, studio and workshop tours.
The Virtual Preview reflects London Craft Week’s ambition to celebrate exceptional creativity and craftsmanship from around the world. From household names to those less well known, its aim is to shine a spotlight on ‘unsung creative heroes’. LCW tells the stories behind some of the world’s most beautiful objects – the material, the maker, the process and the inspiration.
In collaboration with Contemporary British Silversmiths Jessica Jue has produced a short film that gives a glimpse into her exceptional creativity and craftsmanship and how she is managing to work during the lockdown and we look forward to seeing her demonstrate at London Craft Week in October.
