Areas of expertise
Initially Art College graduate Matt began his journey as a Goldsmith following an inspiring visit to Cairo Museum’s Ancient Egyptian Jewellery section. This rekindled an interest in traditional jewellery fabrication methods, and sparked a research and development period, finalised by a Jewellery and Silversmithing BA Hons Degree (1st class) Sunderland University.
Matt has also studied under Master Silversmith Robert Birch and Esteemed Jeweller Katherine Campbell-Legg.
Matt’s work concentrates on designing bespoke handmade Jewellery using Silver, Gold and Gemstones, he is an advocate of Fairtrade practises and is registered as a Fair Trade Goldsmith.
He creates bespoke commissions in his Jewellery studio in Newcastle and he works in collaboration with other Goldsmiths to create beautiful works using his Diamond Mounting and Setting skills.

As a self taught jeweller I wanted to refine my skills with in person tuition from a skilled goldsmith.
Before the course Matt made sure he understood my goals for the day. He also provided me with information regarding quantities and sizes of metals to bring for my projects, which was very useful.
The training day itself was brilliant! Matt has so much experience in so many areas, it's quite incredible. He is very generous with his knowledge and offers little tips and tricks throughout the day which I'll be definitely using going forward.
Matt teaches in a very relaxed style which I found made for an enjoyable day of learning. I leant so much and gained confidence by attending my training day with Matt and can not recommend his tuition highly enough.
I'll be back to learn more in the near future!
I rated this course with Matt as 5* (Excellent)
