The Goldsmiths' Centre

Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, the Goldsmiths’ Centre is the UK’s leading charity for the professional training of goldsmiths and a unique community for design, creativity and craftsmanship.

The Goldsmiths' Centre was founded in 2007, when the Goldsmiths’ Company recognised that a way to grow the jewellery industry was to build a dedicated hub.

The Goldsmiths’ Centre offers support and training for jewellers, silversmiths and those working in the allied trades to develop successful and rewarding careers. It brings together trainee and working goldsmiths and those interested in the trade in a unique community that works and learns together. The Goldsmiths’ Centre’s aim is to create a skilled workforce, boost the economy and promote craftsmanship in the UK.

Discover the Centre’s range of courses, specialist events, talks and exhibitions, which offer training, support and an insight into the goldsmiths’ craft. By hiring an event space, enjoying a meal in our café, Bench, giving your expertise or becoming a member of the Goldsmiths’ Centre, you are making a valuable contribution to its work.
