The CASS Jewellers at New Designers 2018

We are raising money so as to exhibit at New Designers 2018, an unmissable opportunity for new design talent to be commissioned or recruited

by Cassjs2017@gmail.com in London, Greater London, England

We did it
On 12th December 2017 we successfully raised £1,480 with 32 supporters in 28 days


We are a group of 10 designers/makers who are the last students of the Jewellery & Silversmithing BA degree course at The Cass School of Art, Architecture & Design.
That course has closed: the Jewellery & Silversmithing BA may be ending but we are just starting our careers.

New Designers is the flagship show for new design graduates, so with no university funding available, we decided to take the initiative to ensure our participation and showcase our collections to the key professionals of the design world: potential employers, customers, galleries and the design industry.

Some of our original pieces that we are offering as Rewards for donations:
(See UPDATES for more info)

               


We aim to raise £4000 forthe exhibition space; stand furniture, fittings, lighting; transport; display materials; brochures; publicity materials, etc; materials for making the Rewards.

UPDATE 10 December However, we have already had to pay the deposit for the exhibition space, and the makers of the Rewards have agreed to donate their work free, so if we can reach £2500, we won't have to do any more fundraising for New Designers, and can concentrate on work (and money) for our final collections for our degree. 


We are:
