Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Assemble 2012: the Crafts Council Conference at RIBA, London. 20 September 2012


This year, the overarching theme for Assemble is the contribution craft makes to innovation and enterprise, and the relationship between making, science and technology

Makers work in a far greater range of contexts than is widely realised – bringing innovation and distinctive value to biotechnology, engineering, materials science, manufacturing and digital and communications technology. For scientists, engineers and technologists, collaboration with makers and other creative professionals can bring particular benefits and is capable of introducing new ways of thinking.

Conference sessions will focus on bioscience and high-end Manufacturing and will include panel discussions, workshops and other activities alongside keynote speakers.
