A new home and a partnership with the National Trust announced


Bishopsland has announced today a new fundraising campaign ahead of its imminent relocation to the National Trust Buscot and Coleshill Estate in South Oxfordshire.

The Bishopsland Educational Trust is taking out a 37-year lease on a 7,750sq ft historic Grade II listed derelict building to create a new home for Bishopsland, to develop spacious workshops, dedicated machine/hammering rooms, flexible creative and digital working areas, incubation workshops, offices, meeting facilities and accommodation. The organisation is due to commence activities on site from summer 2024.

The Bishopsland Educational Trust is inviting visionary founding partners, dedicated funders, forward-thinking corporate sponsors and those keen to support emerging makers and silversmithing at all levels to join hands with the organisation to shape a brighter future and protect and preserve professional silversmithing skills through a £2.5M fundraising campaign. Funders will be pivotal in providing the essential resources needed to develop the site at and secure its future. BET has invested nearly £100k of its own reserves into the project to date.
