  • In 1955 Harry Roger Cartwright (b. 1940) became an apprentice silversmith with T. Ducrow and Sons, of Edward St, Birmingham.

After gaining a National Diploma in Design in 1962, Cartwright went on to complete the City & Guilds Intermediate and Final in 1963.

    Initially working in Chipping Camden for Robert Welch as silversmith and prototype maker for Old Hall stainless steelware, this included production of the Avelston pattern service and special silver commissions.

    Cartwright was later offered a teaching post under R. G. Baxendale, Head of School at Vittoria Street. While there his colleagues included C. J. Shiner, Eric G. Clements, and Gerald Wild.
