Wednesday October 25th 2017 at 10am at the Grove Centre, New Street,  Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 4BH.

Lecture with Jack Metcalfe Titled “Chippendale Unstuck”

tells the fascinating story behind the demise of the original table made for the then circular dressing room at Harewood House in 1772.  Jack’s subsequent replica reproduction of the stunning marquetry work designed by Chippendale, reveals how the original marquetry was constructed, showing 18th century  techniques to build an exact replica.  The table, when finished, will form part of the Chippendale’s Tercentenary Exhibition commencing on the 9th February 2018 in the Leeds Museum.

The talk is open to all who wish to attend.
