We are delighted that we have a full programme for 2013 to promote and sell contemporary British silversmithing. This includes two exhibitions at the new Goldsmiths’ Centre in Clerkenwell and four exhibitions in partnership with Craft in Focus in Kensington, Henley, RHS Wisley and Winchester.
Our ambition to raise the awareness of modern contemporary British silversmithing to the public is working, with coverage in major magazines and newspapers since our launch in 2008. We are also very pleased about the partnerships being built between makers, dealers and collectors.
We are benefiting hugely from continued sponsorship by the Goldsmiths’ Company, corporate and educational sponsors whose financial help is the backbone of the company. We are planning business courses for silversmiths who would like to extend their selling and marketing skills, free of charge.
Through all these efforts Festival of Silver is proud to be a small part of the growing and blossoming ‘renaissance of British silversmithing’.
