Our Patrons are lead supporters of the Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council; collectively they form a main stay of funding and moral support and directly follow our founding and principal Patrons in importance, status and value to Council. The GC&DC Patrons are central to the success of Council’s work in promoting excellence in craftsmanship, design and technology. We all share a vested interest in encouraging the next generation of skilled craftsmen and women, and our Patrons actively support this through their continued and generous commitment.
We are also incredibly lucky to have HRH Princess Michael of Kent as our Patron. Princess Michael shows an active interest in our organisation and the work that we do and her wholehearted support of the craft, industry and education is greatly appreciated.
