With a background as a trained silversmith with experience in product development and as a trade silversmith, I am passionate about supporting the industry and individual craftspeople through communications, event development and strategic direction.
I love nothing more than problem solving and working closely with makers and association to find creative solutions. I have worked with the Goldsmiths’ Company, Contemporary British Silversmiths, the Serpentine Galleries among others.
Silver Speaks was a 15 month long multi event programme conceived and delivered for Contemporary British Silversmiths designed to champion makers within the British silversmithing community.
The programme comprised exhibitions, talks, demonstrations, workshops and a public symposium all designed to showcase the work and breadth of skill of silversmiths in the United Kingdom.
The programme was delivered in partnership with the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Goldsmiths’ Company in 2016.
The main exhibition was curated by design critic and journalist Corinne Julius on the theme of Silver in Contemporary Life and held in the Silver Galleries in the V&A.
Alongside the V&A event, there was a complementary exhibition at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in Clerkenwell focusing on skills and technique, alongside a trade symposium and academic conference.
