A date for your diaries:
RFS members will be interested to hear about a two day symposium considering the rush seated chair, to be held at Marchmont House, Berwickshire this September.
This symposium will investigate the rush seated chair in all its facets, from the material and the ways in which the rush seats were made, to the widespread variety of vernacular types. Discussion will lead to some of the talented architect/designers whose names became associated with their revival. The scope of the symposium will cover all contexts, from the urban to the rural; from the country house to the cottage.
Full details of the event and the programme can be seen here Programme, and tickets can be purchased via the Eventbrite website here: The Rush Seated Chair – A celebration of past, present and future.
