AKIN – Arundel’s Creative Collective – welcomes hugely respected silversmith and metal engraver Malcolm Appleby to talk at their next “show and tell” session.
Malcolm has spent his career of more than 50 years dedicated to engraving and pushing the boundaries of metalwork and will talk to AKIN about his craft and his influences.
Malcolm studied at Central School of Art, Sir John Cass and the Royal College of Art in London before establishing his studio in Scotland in 1969.
He discovered gun engraving while at art school and over the years has created wonderful work such as the Raven Gun for the Royal Armouries.
He then used those skills to become a silversmith and metal engraver and is known for his imaginative use of line and form.
His work can be seen in the National Museums Scotland, Edinburgh, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Crafts Council, London. Commissions include work in 10 Downing Street as well as the London Assay Office and the Residence of the First Minister for Scotland.
Malcolm was made MBE for services to hand engraving in 2014.
The talk, on Wednesday, March 27, at 7pm at The Victoria Institute, 10 Tarrant Street, Arundel, is free for AKIN members to attend but tickets cost £5 for non-members. For more details, visit: www.akinarundel.com
