Play a part

The Goldsmiths’ Centre is more than just a building. We are a registered charity and a social enterprise. Play your part in supporting the generation of goldsmiths, promoting and sustaining the goldsmiths’ craft.

Supporting young people

Every year we offer free training for up to 10 young people aged 16 to 19 to enter a life-long career as a goldsmith. Many continue to develop their skills as an Apprentice. With over 700 years of history, we deliver the Goldsmiths’ Company Apprenticeship Scheme, providing additional training and support to over 35 talented and award-winning Apprentices.

How can I help?

  • Fund, mentor or offer work experience for our trainees on our Foundation Programme course
  • Support an Apprentice as their Master
  • Act as an ambassador for us among the trade; encourage students at schools or universities to apply for our courses

Helping businesses to thrive

We support skilled craftspeople and businesses by providing access to workshops and studios for sole traders, start-up and established businesses. All resident craftspeople give back their skills, expertise and time, teaching on our courses to speaking at events. Our short courses for recent graduates and working craftspeople offer skills training and business growth modules.

How can I help?

  • Share your skills as a tutor on evening classes for improvers 
  • Mentor up and coming designer-makers and start-up businesses in both technical and business capacities 

Growing interest

Our exhibitions, specialist events and talks focus on jewellery, silversmithing and the allied trades. The industry and interested members of the public are able to discover exceptional design and craftsmanship – demystifying the goldsmiths’ craft.
