Success at The Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards

Craft and Design Council Awards

We are proud to announce that so many of our members received
recognition at this year’s award ceremony.

On the success of our recent exhibition Enamoured at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, the Enamel section of the competition was expanded for the first time this year; not only recognising traditional skill in the established section, ‘Enamellers & Enamel Painters – Craft’ but encouraging the use of more experimental design within enamelling through the addition of a new section ‘Enamellers 3D Finished Pieces – Design’.

Congratulations to Yasmin Belkhayat, Janine Greenberg, Elizabeth Campbell, Naomi Nevill, and Scarlet Cohen French.
