Join curator Gail Pope and explore all things shiny in this exhibition that celebrates silver objects from our collection.
Silver, valued for its rarity and attractive lustre, has for centuries been mined and formed into an extensive range of domestic, personal, religious, and ceremonial objects.
Silver can be shaped, decorated and embellished using an extraordinarily diverse range of techniques, from raising and casting to chasing, embossing, engraving, gilding, and piercing - come along and see some fabulous examples on display.
Free public programme, no booking required.
Please meet in the main foyer.
