The Goldsmiths' Centre Launches Educational Partnership with Weston Beamor
Today, we launched a new educational partnership with major UK jewellery manufacturer, Weston Beamor, offering emerging creative businesses on the Centre’s Setting Out programme a greater insight into manufacturing processes to help them grow their businesses.
Senior staff from Weston Beamor will be helping to support emerging jewellery and silversmithing businesses taking part in the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s year-long business incubation programme, Setting Out. Through both site visits and virtual mentoring, the aim is to grow the participants’ understanding of manufacturing processes as they develop their new collections and help them to develop their supply chains.
“Weston Beamor are one of the most respected and trusted names in the UK jewellery industry. By working together, we firmly believe that those participating in the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s Setting Out course will get greatly benefit from a deeper understanding of the manufacturing process, helping them to scale up their businesses.”
– Peter Taylor, Director of the Goldsmiths' Centre
“As a result of investment in new technology and our people, Weston Beamor are industry leaders in commercial and bespoke fine jewellery manufacture. With more than 800 years of knowledge, we have a highly skilled manufacturing team spanning across CAD, 3D printing, goldsmithing and diamond setting. We’re therefore delighted to be sharing our knowledge and expertise helping creative jewellery and silversmithing businesses in the UK to effectively outsource elements of their production processes to increase volume and market reach.”
– Andrew Morton, Managing Director at Weston Beamor
