Silversmithing is the art of turning silver sheet metal into items for the home like tableware and candlesticks, for the church, like collection plates and more candlesticks or for personal use, like jewellery, and the Society’s July speaker is a specialist. She taught it at Stafford College for 36 years. Now, since retirement, she takes that expertise on the road, telling groups across the West Midlands about this specialist skill, crafting a precious metal into objects of beauty.
Naturally, Penny brings a variety of exquisite items with her to illustrate the talk and invites her audience to marvel at the detail of the craft and information about those who make them.
Come and join us for Penny’s talk on 16th July at 8pm in the Village Hall, all welcome.
