Bryony Knox is an experienced metalworker who specialises in silversmithing, especially the techniques of repoussé and chasing. Her work is noted for being elegant, glamorous and yet still very much functional, appearing as an art piece on the outside but on closer inspection reveals functionality, hidden secrets, engraving and intricate design and detailing. She has been commissioned for pieces by Princess Anne, JK Rowling and more.
Her workships are a great way to take a hands-on approach to learning about creative metalwork and silversmithing. Plus you will take home something that you have made!
