Discover contemporary jewellery, silversmithing and metal embroidery made with hand-drawn wire, presented in partnership with The Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers.

The craft of hand-drawing and using gold or silver round or flattened wire has a rich heritage. Craftspeople continue to learn and evolve this traditional skill, adapting it to the designs of today.

The exhibition, Drawn and Formed, will bring together a wide selection of craft work, from the intricate and beautiful jewellery of Andrew Lamb to the delicate detailed embroidery designs of Laura Baverstock. It will provide a unique insight into the process of drawing and working with wire; and will celebrate the very best UK craftspeople against a backdrop of historic work.
