Each of these makers regularly exhibit their work across the UK and beyond. Many will be showing at the Goldsmiths Fair in London – week 1 is September 24-30, week 2 is October 2-7. Goldsmiths’ also started in 1982 and are celebrating their 25 anniversary.
There will be an evening viewing of the Silver Exhibition on Thursday 11 October 6-8pm. It is free to attend and all are welcome.
