Yorkshire Artspace provides studio space to over 170 artists and makers across three studio sites in Sheffield. We aim to be a centre of excellence for the support of artists and makers, providing good quality, affordable studio space and delivering a programme which offers exhibition opportunities, training and Starter Studios.
In 2002 we established The Starter Studio Programme for Silversmiths & Jewellers. Delivered from a fully equipped silversmith workshop drawing on the skills and expertise that exist in the city and indeed in our studios to provide mentor and skill support.
Historically renowned throughout the world as a centre of excellence for the cutlery industry, Sheffield still has a thriving infrastructure for the silversmithing sector and many emerging and established silversmiths have workshops either at Yorkshire Artspace or elsewhere in the city.
