Festival of Silver’s mission is to promote the skills, design and craftsmanship of UK silversmiths and to give a high-profile platform to both established and newly qualified silversmiths.

We also strive to be a comprehensive resource and showcase for the industry. Originally set up by Gordon Hamme and Brett Payne in 2008, British Silver Week quickly grew to become Festival of Silver and has mounted over 80 major exhibitions across the UK bringing new silversmithing talent to the attention of the media and public. In 2019 Gordon Hamme handed over the reigns to Fenella Watson who continues to organise Festival of Silver events in association with different Craft shows and exhibitions, most notably the annual Spring craft fair at RHS Wisley and new for this year at Craft Festival.

Festival of Silver, will feature the finest makers of silver, from across the UK.
