From ingot to spoon in an hour and a half, we watched Steve fashion a small block of silver into a jam spoon in front of our very eyes.

You can win the finished polished, assayed spoon if you pop in and visit us during the exhibition and fill in a prize draw slip.

It’s a dying art – so please come along and support new young artists. 

Back in the summer of 2008, British Silver Week was launched to create awareness of modern contemporary British silver ware – the best in the world. Displaying their signature pieces in an exhibition reflecting 21st Century silversmithing, events were happening across the UK. This year, The Festival of Silver will be presenting exhibitions in London, Henley, Wisley and Winchester.  Hosting their version of the selling exhibition this summer is Payne and Son Jewellers on the old High Street in  Royal Tunbridge Wells, who throughout June, July and August will be featuring exhibits of silverware from British designer/silversmiths:

Outstanding masters of their craft, this prestigious group of artists will present to you innovative design, inspiring craftsmanship, traditional skills and pure indulgence.

As this is a selling exhibition, any items purchased may be collected after the event.
