hart silversmith trust

an archive of drawings and designs spanning over a century, preserving our heritage for future generations

The Hart Silversmiths Trust was established in 2010 to care for the drawings and designs archive built up by the Guild of Handicraft since 1888. The collection comprises approximately 3,000 drawings covering a span of over a century’s work, representing an important part of local and national heritage and a valuable record of silversmithing and the Arts and Crafts movement. The Trust website contains more information about the Guild, learning resources, the archive gallery and our oral history project.
