Event description

Description

Opening with a fantastic collection of black and white photographs of the original interiors at Derngate, the Northampton house designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this talk engages its audience through the detective work of its refurbishment. It was long thought that the famous striped bedroom had paper on the walls, but research to confirm the width of the stripes and the hunt for authentic examples in archives proved that the walls were covered with cloth. The owner, Bassett-Lowke, was closely involved with the decoration of the house and the work undertaken by his own firm became a key to solving the mystery and why this surprise decision was made.

Refreshments follow Mary's talk, where she will share her personal examples of textiles relating to this exciting project.
