Applications Now Open for Goldsmiths' Precious Metals Grants 2020

The Goldsmiths’ Centre has now opened applications for its Precious Metal Grant competition aimed at HND, BA or MA level students studying jewellery, silversmithing or a related subject. The grant offers students the opportunity to design and produce a piece of their own work in precious metals supplied by Cookson Precious Metals (London) worth £750 (incl. VAT). 

These annual bursaries give up to 12 silversmiths and 8 jewellers the unique opportunity to design and make jewellery, silver or associated pieces in precious metal, based on the quality of their submitted designs.

“The Precious Metal Grants are our key initiative to identify emerging talent and are a great opportunity for anyone undertaking their final project. Not only do they provide funding to enable students to realise an ambitious design, they are also an opportunity to work with other emerging makers through our skills-swap initiative, learn more about the Goldsmiths’ Centre, and ultimately promote their work”, says Julia Skilton, Education and Partnership Officer at the Goldsmiths’ Centre.

Applications for The Precious Metal Grant competition close on Monday 20 January 2020 for BA and MA students and Monday 17 February 2020 for HND students. For more information and to apply, visit
