SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS AT BISHOPSLAND EDUCATIONAL TRUST
Bishopsland is an internationally recognised, postgraduate residential centre, helping newly-established self-employed silversmiths and jewellers to develop their skills.
There is equal concentration on silversmithing skills and the professional skills needed to be able to work successfully as a self-employed maker.
“The support I received through the South Square Trust allowed my studies at Bishopsland to be a financially viable option. Additionally, knowing that an institution valued my studies and prospective contribution to society was very nurturing and empowering.”
“I was very lucky to have the opportunity to receive a grant from South Square Trust while I was at Bishopsland, which was a huge help in pursuing my dream of being a self-employed silversmith. There I learned and developed my signature skills of chasing, repoussé and hand engraving which I continue to use some 12 years later.”
