We want to ensure that the craft of silversmithing continues. The number of courses in the UK has declined in recent years, with the focus being more on jewellery. The cost of buying silver can be a real problem, and we have started a programme to help final-year graduate students acquire the necessary raw material, as well as supporting graduate silversmiths in the development of their craft skills.

WHO WE SUPPORT
THE SOUTH HOUSE WORKSHOP TRUST
We started our partnership with The South House Workshop Trust in 2020, supporting up to three young students to learn intensively under a master silversmith.
