Our Story

Welcome to the centre of opportunity

Designing, making, crafting and finishing: it all comes together at the Goldsmiths’ Centre. Come to our home, a stone’s throw from Hatton Garden, and join more than 100 makers and businesses in the jewellery and silversmithing industry. Hone your craft, learn new skills, build your business or attend one of our events to make new connections. We welcome everyone: from the young and curious, to designers, makers, manufacturers and craftspeople at all stages in their journey.


At the Goldsmiths' Centre, we offer technical training, affordable workspace, business support and funding opportunities, so that we can all take our next steps as part of a nurturing community.

We do all this for the love of making, channelling our passion to close the skills gap and foster capability at every link in the chain; for a thriving, sustainable future for all.



We support the jewellery, silversmithing and allied industries to embrace learning as an essential lifelong practice.
