Bishopsland at Clothworkers’ Hall

6 January @ 9:21 am

Free

Bishopsland Educational Trust is pleased to invite all members of the livery community to a unique exhibition celebrating the best contemporary silver and silver jewellery made in the UK today. Thanks to the generosity of The Clothworkers’ Company, Bishopsland is returning to Clothworkers’ Hall for a one-day only event to highlight the work of the Trust and support makers – many of whom are Bishopsland Fellows who have completed the Trust’s prestigious one-year silversmithing programme.

Guests can expect to enjoy drinks and canapés between 4.00pm and 8.00pm along with:

– a one-of-a-kind exhibition featuring current emerging makers from our silversmith programme as well as leading contemporary silversmiths from across the UK
two expert-led talks in the Livery Hall including (1) Dr Tessa Murdoch, Independent scholar & Acting Chair of the Huguenot Museum (Rochester), Institutional Patronage and The Clothworkers’ Approach to a Special Commission in the Past and Present; AND (2) Dr Dora Thornton, The Goldsmiths’ Company Curator, Supporting Contemporary Makers: Recent Acquisitions for The Goldsmiths’ Company Collection
– a selection of silversmithing demonstrations
– the fabulous surroundings of Clothworkers’ Hall (which is due to close for events and visits in 2023 as the livery company begins redeveloping the Hall and surrounding properties).

A percentage of sales will go towards supporting the Bishopsland Educational Trust, the only residential post-graduate silversmithing & jewellery training programme in the UK. Donations are also gratefully accepted.
