Celebrating FORGE's first year in Hatton Garden

On Thursday 8th February, FORGE celebrated it’s one-year anniversary in spectacular style. The party, attended by members of the trade and FORGE patrons, wonderfully exemplifies the community created by Amanda as a valuable part of her mission to bring together all facets of the industry in a creative and welcoming environment.

Since throwing open its doors 12 months ago, FORGE’s achievements include:
  • Supported & promoted over 130 designers exhibiting in their monthly themed Showcases
  • 37 designers returned for another Showcase (2, 3 and 4 times!)
  • Full capacity of FORGE memberships
  • Taught over 20 Workshops
  • 14 designers took part in demonstrations for London Craft Week and
  • Clerkenwell Design Week where over 100 design enthusiasts came through the door to engage with the craftspeople
  • 13 Private Views
  • Eight In-Conversations, with notable guests for the INSPIRE series including Alex Monroe, Solange Azagury-Partridge, Corinne Julius, Rachael Taylor and Ute Decker.
  • Over 4k followers on Instagram
  • Raised £350 for Cancer Research UK
FORGE’s mission is to make jewellery accessible to all. Through affordable workshop space, supported showcases, teaching, mentoring and learning. For the independent designer, it is a chance to showcase and promote themselves in the real world when most rely on digital interactions.
