Little Gems (until 13 May 2015)
Sheffield is synonymous with steel production and the metal trades. Metal skills still thrive to this day through a community of silversmiths and designers who create innovative, beautifully hand-crafted designs. This exhibition brings together the collections of up and coming designers from Yorkshire Artspace in Sheffield to London for the first time.
