Event type

The beauty, lustre and intrinsic value of silver have made it an object of admiration and aspiration across Europe. Today silversmiths continue to create astounding contemporary work that is highly desirable for its innovative design and level of craftsmanship.

This exhibition presents a selection of outstanding work by European silversmiths created over the past year bound together under the theme “Renewal”. The theme is inspired by the regeneration of Dundee, the host city for this year’s European Silversmiths Forum also known as HammerClub and first city on this exhibition’s UK tour.  

Formed in 2002, the HammerClub brings European silversmiths together annually in a different part of Europe, to celebrate the ancient practice of silversmithing and to explore and ensure its future. The HammerClub and the Goldsmiths’ Centre are dedicated to the future of the art and craft of silversmithing, and the vitality and variety of the works in Renewal prove how it continues to renew and remain relevant to contemporary culture and living.
