Having the presses gives me a chance to explain about hallmarking and the purities of the various precious metals. I also explain the work of the Scottish Goldsmiths Trust to stimulate the craft of silversmithing in Scotland by staging exhibitions such as Silver of the Stars which is currently touring museums and galleries throughout the world including the V&A.
Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
