REMS visit the Goldsmiths Centre: 29 November 2012
11 December 2012
The Goldsmiths' company is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London.
Since 1300 it has been responsible for hallmarking gold and silver articles and promoting the work of its freemen. To further its work in supporting gold and silver smithing and offering training, it has opened the new Goldsmiths’ Centre in Clerkenwell.
Peter Taylor, the director, kindly offered to tell us about the Centre and showed us some of the workshops. We saw the classical metal forming techniques for gold, silver, platinum and the high tech area of CAD design and metal forming.
Peter Taylor, the director and our host, was an excellent guide.
