The Hart Silversmiths: A Living Tradition
This exhibition explores the evolution of a living tradition in design and silversmithing which has its origins in the Arts and Crafts Movement. Following the line of the family of Harts who have worked in the Silk Mill in Chipping Campden for over a century, this exhibition brings together both domestic and civic commissions alongside the spectacular drawings which have inspired them. It also tells the story of a tradition and way of life which began with C. R. Ashbee’s Guild of Handicraft in the East End of London, moving to Chipping Campden in 1902 and then run by George Hart and subsequent members of the Hart family from 1912 to the present day.
