Sheffield Assay Office – 250 Years in the Making

Wednesday, 22nd February 2023

7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Makerspace, Portland Works, Randall Street

Tickets are £5.00 through Eventbrite

We are delighted to announce that our first talk of the 2023 programme of lectures at Portland Works will be given by Emma Paragreen. Emma edits the Bradbury’s book of hallmarks and gives regular lectures on the work of Assay Offices. Her illustrated talk promises to be fascinating and informative as she takes us through 250 years of hallmarking history.

Emma is a great ambassador for both the Assay Office and Sheffield Museums. Emma holds a Professional Jeweller’s diploma, she is a Committee member of The Silver Society, a Director of the Association of Contemporary Jewellers, and a Freeman of the Goldsmith’s Company.

If you are interested in precious metals (who isn’t!?) this talk is not to be missed!
