Meet contemporary jewellers at work

There’s a wonderful opportunity this month to see Birmingham’s creative and innovative jewellery designers and makers in action.

The collaborative group Centrepiece are opening their workshops to public view on Friday 18 May  (4pm until 7pm) and Saturday 19 May (10am until 4pm). Centrepiece has also invited guest jewellers to take part. Visitors will be able to explore 10 venues and meet around 40 designer-makers in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter (see map below)

See jewellers at work, invest in some original pieces

“It’s the perfect chance to see behind the scenes and glimpse the modern working environment of this historic area of the city,” says designer Alice Gow who took part in ILF's most recent Visioning workshop.

 “It is a terrific opportunity to meet working jewellers and buy original, contemporary work from the hands that made it.”
