Led by the Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office, and supported by the Goldsmiths’ Company, the event will provide a packed programme of inspiring talks from leading figures in the trade, live demos, an exhibition of entries into the Make You Mark Award, careers advice and much more besides.

Key elements of the event will include:

  • Make Your Mark Awards - an exciting design competition that aims to challenge today’s students working in precious metal. Prizes will be awarded to the most artistically convincing design, model or finished piece in which precious metal is used with prominence, and where a London hallmark is part of the design.
