GSWD Needlework, Jewellery and Embroidery Awards.
The Worshipful Company of Gold & Silver Wyre Drawers trace their origins to medieval times and to the ancient trade of making the gold and silver wire used in embroidery, notably of uniforms and ceremonial costumes. While the craft has declined over the centuries, it is still practised by some of the finest embroiderers and artisans. The Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers are particularly keen to maintain their links with the Royal School of Needlework, The Goldsmiths Craft & Design Council and Hand & Lock by supporting young people working with gold and silver wires.
