A Decorative Art: History of Wallpapers

On Monday 17th October at 2.30pm

OUR OCTOBER 2022 LECTURE IN BETCHWORTH VILLAGE MEMORIAL HALL (AND AT HOME BY ZOOM) FOR MEMBERS AND VISITORS

A FASCINATING HOUR

If you are not a member (we are recruiting new members now) do come as a visitor either to the hall or by Zoom. Zooming is not complicated and we provide easy to follow instructions.

Jo Banham, former head of adult learning at The Victoria & Albert Museum and now a freelance curator, lecturer and writer, will be presenting this lecture.

“Wallpaper”, she says, “is often regarded as the Cinderella of the DecorativeArts – the most ephemeral and least precious of the decorations produced for the home. Yet, the history of wallpaper is a long and fascinating subject. It dates back to the 16th century and encompasses a huge range of beautiful patterns created both by anonymous hands and by some of the best-known designers of the 19th and 20th centuries”.

Join us in Betchworth, or by zoom from your home, on Monday, October 17th at 2.30 pm for this stimulating, illustrated lecture. It is free for members but do come as a visitor for £5. Just pay at the door.
