A Tea-Time Talk with Catrin Jones, Curator of Decorative Arts, Holburne Museum

What does a porcelain lady’s chamberpot containing a hidden message and decorated with extraordinary dragon mounts have in common with a modern tapestry woven by designer Edward McKnight Kauffer in 1935? Both have recently undergone conservation work so that they can go on display for the first time.
Join Catrin Jones, Curator of Decorative Arts, for a snapshot into what’s going on behind the scenes of the Museum. Catrin will present some surprising stories, sharing the fruits of the research which have led to a series of recent conservation projects.
