A celebration of 30 years of Bishopsland Educational Trust

Bishopsland Educational Trust is an internationally recognised and accredited charity dedicated to the training and education of young people in the craft of silversmithing and fine jewellery. Their two-year immersive residential programmes is celebrating its 30th anniversary providing a much-needed bridge between full time education and a career as a designer-maker. The Trust has awarded over £300k in bursaries to talented metalworkers regardless of background, means or academic ability.

They have nurtured the careers of over 200 silversmiths and jewellers over the last 30 years, the vast majority of whom have gone on to develop sustainable businesses. Today the Bishopsland society of Fellows are some of the foremost craftspeople in their field, continuing to pass their skills onto others and contributing to the vibrancy of the British craft sector.

This exhibition celebrates both new and established makers from the Bishopsland, showcasing exceptional and highly collectable jewellery and silversmithing work. The makers from Bishopsland alumni are Sarah Shelton-Palmer, Charlotte Duckworth, Ndidi Ekubia, Sheila McDonald, Alice Fry, Iona Hall, Jessica Jue, Miriam Hanid, Bryony Knox, Isabella Kelley, Caius Bearder, Katie Watson, Angela Cork and Patrick Davison. The makers from the current programme are Jonathan Stokes (Artist in Residence), Morvarid Alavifard, Sarah Pitcher, Hanneke Merckx, Alewijn Slingerland, Caitlin Murphy, Blake Roberts, Revan Abdulsabour, Ayat Dhahi, Anna-Karina Henderson.
