the guild of handicraft
gold and silversmiths

We are a team of craftsmen that design and make a wide range of domestic silverware, jewellery and ecclesiastical and civic silver. The workshop is the last operating remnant of the Guild of Handicraft, which C.R. Ashbee established in 1888. George Hart was a silversmith with the Guild when it moved from London’s East End to the Cotswold town of Chipping Campden in 1902. From 1912 he took over running the workshop, joined in 1930 by his son Henry. This high tradition is now continued by his grandson David Hart, along with Derek Elliott, William Hart and Julian Hart.
