The Incorporation of Goldsmiths are running a raffle to raise funds directly support Jewellers and Silversmiths at student and emerging maker level through three programmes: Precious Metal Grants, an annual grant given to each of the Scottish Art Colleges teaching Jewellery at HND level and above; the Ethical Making Pledge supporting transition to sustainable and responsible procurement of metals and workshop practice; and support for a reduced emerging maker stand cost at Elements.
As a small arts charity operating in the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic they are now having to diversify and fundraise for all their projects and programmes. This fundraiser, along with donations and grants, will support our work at The Scottish Goldsmiths Trust and help preserve it during this challenging year and for the future.
They have a beautiful selection of jewellery pieces donated by me and other very talented makers with the retail value of all pieces estimated at more than £3,500.
Tickets are now available for £10/ticket, and there is no limit on the number an individual can purchase. Each ticket is one entry to win one of 20+ items donated by professional, skilled makers from across the UK. Winners will be drawn at the closing event of Elements: A Festival of Jewellery, Silver and Gold on 8 November 2020. All winners will be contacted by e-mail the following week.
