The Contemporary British Silversmiths have launched a skills share initiative where members will be sharing some of the skills that have been passed onto them by other craftspeople throughout their career.

The Contemporary British Silversmiths has a long history of community and skills sharing - peer to peer learning is one of the organisation’s founding principles.

The first skill share is from Rauni Higson, and shows master silversmith Tony Bedford demonstrating how to solder a wire rim onto a flared vase. Tony agreed to answer any questions on the CBS Instagram page on the video post when it was launched last week.

For London Craft Week, the CBS launched a film made by CBS graduate member Jessica Jue which became the 5th most viewed film on the London Craft Week website during their Virtual Preview and gave a unique glimpse into her extraordinary creative process.

In continuing the process the CBS will publish new free online content over the coming weeks  to continue to support the community of craftspeople and help promote their work.

The initiative is supported by #cbsskillshare initiative

Buying from our makers helps support small business doing this period. So do get in touch if we can help you commission work or link you with our makers or galleries that stock their work.  

#CBSSkillShare Film No.1: Tony Bedford
