The history of the Windsor chair – Amersham Museum’s Winter Tales talk – 25th February 2016

The history of the Windsor chair –
Amersham Museum’s Winter Tales talk – 25th February 2016

On Thursday 25th February 2016 Stuart King will be sharing the long established local tradition of chairmaking. His talk, The Windsor Chair – How, Why and When? will take place in the Market Hall. Doors open at 7.30pm and the talk starts at 8pm.

Stuart was born in Holmer Green in 1942, and played as a child in the local Beech woods. The countryside and the trades and traditions that shaped it over centuries has always fascinated him and influenced his work. He has spent much of his lifetime researching, recording and collecting anything about the rural past and today is a well-known artist craftsman, demonstrator, international lecturer and photo-journalist.
He is still actively recording traditional crafts, local landscape and history via photography and video and has appeared occasionally on TV including programmes as diverse as “The Generation Game”, “Time Team” & Michael Portillo’s “Great Railway Journeys”.

The cost of the talk is £8 per person (£6.00 for Friends of Amersham Museum) and includes a glass of wine (or a soft drink) on arrival.

On-line booking is available, via this link http://www.amershammuseum.org/chairmaking. Alternatively, contact the museum on 01494 723700 or e-mail curator@amershammuseum.org
