This exhibition explores the history of apprenticeships and charts the 4-year journey of the first cohort of students on the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s Foundation Programme from the signing of their apprenticeship indentures to completing their time under the tutelage of a skilled Master and receiving their Freedom of the Goldsmiths’ Company.
Discover the stories behind the Goldsmiths’ Company Apprentices and their Masters, and delight in a selection of their “Masterpieces” – epitomising their dedication to the acquisition of outstanding skills, knowledge and an exceptional level of craftmanship.
“My Master is a really passionate and inspiring person and it makes you want to craft amazing things!”
