With over 150 members, the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths (IPG) unites jewellers and silversmiths and those with other related trade skills who set “excellence” as the standard for all that they design and make.

These craftspeople are ‘hidden treasures’ because they hold specific and expert skills, which contribute to the realisation of a broad diversity of work, but often go unnamed. They can be one of many collaborators, on whom the trade relies, but are not the public face of the industry.

In this exhibition we explore and celebrate the contribution of the following exceptional craftspeople and nature of the expertise they hold and practice.
