Who We Are

The Goldsmiths’ Centre is the UK’s leading charity for the professional training of goldsmiths. Founded by the Goldsmiths’ Company, one of the major Livery Companies of the City of London, our mission is to advance, maintain and develop art, craft, design and artisan skills related to goldsmithing.

What we do

The Goldsmiths’ Centre brings together trainee and working goldsmiths and those interested in jewellery, silversmithing and the allied industries in a unique community that works and learns together. 

As the government focuses on the importance of technical skills to the UK economy, we play a pivotal role in creating a skilled workforce, boosting the economy and promoting craftsmanship in the UK.

We provide an unrivalled facility for craftspeople to excel and thrive in their careers. We nurture the next generation of makers, support the growth of businesses and provide affordable workshop space to rent. 

In 2017, we celebrated 5 years of impact. Take a look as to what we have achieved and our plans for the future.
