Goldsmiths' Fair 2014

Elizabeth Peers Beaker, Britannia SilverI am once again thrilled to be able to invite you to Goldsmiths' Fair, renowned as the most important, prestigious event of its kind in Europe. I will be exhibiting and selling my work during Week 2 of the Fair - 30th September - 5th October.

I will be exhibiting new pieces, which I have been developing since the beginning of this year following a trip to the beautiful and rugged Shetland, where I spent my Queen Elizabeth Scholarship with Rod Kelly, a Master in the technique of Chasing. Following this I have also drawn inspiration from my time exploring parts of India, taking in the warmth and colours of its landscape and people.

This year The Goldsmiths’ Fair has made some exciting new changes, including a new website where you can pre-book your tickets and browse the blog of artist stories.
There will also be a programme of Breakfast Talks and 'In Conversation' Talks, a selection of works chosen and by internationally renowned architect Zaha Hadid, a new late night Thursday opening and 2 for 1 ticket offers for those with a local London 'EC' postcode.

'Forget mass production, Goldsmiths' Fair is all about the bespoke, the original and the one-off'.

Public Opening:
Week Two - Tuesday 30th September - Sunday 5th October
(NB. Closed Monday 29th Sept)

Opening times - 11am - 6.30pm
Thursday OPEN LATE until 8.30pm

Last entries half an hour prior to closing time.

The Shetlands' Story

On the 17th February 2014, four young silversmiths, myself, Kate Earlam, Ryan McClean and Sophie Stamp, alongside master craftsman Rod Kelly MA RCA and Alfie the Pointer, will embark upon an epic journey in a Volkswagen Transporter. Their destination ... The wilds of Shetland!!

Myself, along with the three other QEST scholars will spend two weeks at the South House Silver Workshop Trust led by Rod Kelly, advancing their existing knowledge and skills in the fine craft of silversmithing.

You can follow the up's and downs of our Shetland silversmithing adventure right here with hopefully frequent updates and photos of the hard work, fun and watch this space!

This awaits...
