Goldsmiths College

The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths founded its Technical and Recreative Institute in 1891. The University of London acquired the Institute and re-established it as Goldsmiths College in 1904.

Goldsmiths, at New Cross in southeast London, has been a full college of the University since 1989. It specialises in courses and research relating to creativity and culture.

Goldsmiths has a reputation for producing visual artists, particularly those collectively known as the Young British Artists, also known as Brit artists and Britart.

Members of the Goldsmiths Society include artists Damien Hirst and Steve McQueen, fashion designer Mary Quant, comedian Julian Clary and politician Tessa Jowell.
