Heritage Week Event: ‘Irish Country Furniture 1700 – 2000: Recycling Our Past’ – Dr Claudia Kinmonth

Sunday, 14.00, 20.08.19, Heritage Lecture Theatre

As part of Heritage Week and the theme of ‘Pass Times and Past Times’, Nano Nagle Place is delighted to present a talk by Dr Claudia Kinmonth MRIA

If your pastime is upcycling or restoring old furniture you’ll love this talk and handling session with furniture and Art Historian Claudia Kinmonth. You’ll hear about how functional objects from the past were designed for maximum sustainability. Claudia will be bringing her latest objects for handling, discussion and observation. These include flour bags (commonly & imaginatively repurposed and recycled), crocks, cow horn spoons and even some small seats. Claudia is also happy to give explanations and opinions about any ‘old things’ that people bring along (you can also bring photos of larger items like dressers etc).
