‘Arts and Crafts’ design aimed to be beautiful, useful, and change the world for the better. The Goldsmiths’ Company’s Library and Archive has a rich collection of design drawings, workbooks, and workshop ephemera which reveal how different silversmiths and jewellers from the early 20th century approached the movement’s aesthetic and ideals.

Join the Library and Archive team to explore these collections and consider if the Arts and Crafts approach to design and social mission has lessons for today’s makers.

There will be the opportunity to see, handle, photograph and draw a range of unique artefacts and archives from the collection.
