Yorkshire Artspace's Starter Studio Programme for Silversmithing and Jewellery was shortlisted for the inaugural adn prestigious Craft Skills Award, a major national award in recognition for passing on valuable traditional skills to new generations of designer-makers. Unfortunately we didn't win but enjoyed being part of this glamorous event with HRH Prince of Wales presenting the awards to the winners.
We did feature in a film they made to showcase all the talented craftspeople sharing their skills with newer generations of makers. You can see it here.
