What do you do in your spare time? In conversation with Rauni Higson, Tony Bedford tells us the story behind creating the Jacques Cartier Memorial Award winning silver sculpted head in this illustrated talk. A true labour of love, that showcases Tony's extraordinary silversmithing skills, he reveals the hammering and chasing techniques that evolved a three dimensional sculpture from a single flat sheet of silver.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear from a supreme master silversmith; Tony is, in fact, a two time winner of the Jacques Cartier Memorial Award - the most prestigious award given by the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council.
This talk will inspire and fascinate silversmiths, silver aficionados and anyone interested in hearing about the creative processes behind a masterpiece.
The online talk will be delivered live by Zoom, with opportunity for Q&A.
