Assay Office 'On The Road' in Cornwall and Plymouth


Earlier this month Charlotte Turner, Marketing Manager, and Andy Waker, Manager Greville Street, travelled to Truro and Plymouth to visit silversmithing & jewellery making students.

They delivered practical hallmarking workshops which covered information on the hallmarking legalities and process, and registration of a sponsor's mark. These sessions took place at Truro and Penwith College and Plymouth College of Art speaking to over 60 full and part time students.

Excited Plymouth College of Art Contemporary Craft student Sybella Buttress posted an image on Instagram of the selection of her sponsor’s mark and added “Trying to pick something that is going to stay with me for the next ten years!!! Scary stuff!! No going back now!” (www.instagram.com/sybellabuttress)

These workshops are part of our support for students. If you are a jewellery or silversmithing student or tutor at a college or university in the UK and would like us to conduct a free workshop, please email: charlotte.turner@assayofficelondon.co.uk
