The Marchmont Silversmithing Workshop aims to secure a thriving future for one of the Scotland’s great and most ancient traditions. The Scottish Goldsmiths Trust is establishing The Marchmont Silversmithing Workshop as a national centre where up to five silversmiths at a time can design and create stunning pieces from precious metals.
Thanks to a generous bequest it is being fully equipped with the entire collection of tools, machinery and books built up by celebrated Scottish master silversmith Graham Stewart, of Dunblane, who died in 2020.
On March 25th there will be the grand opening and a series of talks, demonstrations and discussion. One of the key themes of the day is community, and the event will provide a rare occasion for silversmiths to gather together during the weekend of March 24th – 26th.
For the Marchmont Silversmithing Workshop the trust is also developing a funded and self-funded residency programme for 1 week – 1 month residencies with beautiful accommodation included. We will keep you informed.
