The William Dudley Trust is pleased to showcase below some of the work by this year's recipients of awards made to students at the Birmingham School of Jewellery. A total 13 students and graduates received awards from the Trust in 2022. Having gone through a rigourous selection process these students exhibited the necessary attributes and talent worthy of support from the Trust, and are carrying on the tradition of world-class jewellery making in Birmingham.
Alison Fowler was awarded the Trust's Artist in Residence bursary in February 2022. Alison graduated with an HND in Jewellery & Silversmithing from the School of Jewellery in 2021, and has a passion for silversmithing in particular. She would like to establish herself as a silversmith, producing intriguing silverware pieces and customised jewellery. In the meantime she is aiming to develop and deliver short courses at the School of Jewellery to assist current HND Jewellery & Silversmithing students, and hopes in future to undertake a higher education teaching qualification to continue in this field.
