What have the Huguenots ever done for us?

, 2:00pm – 3:15pm
Hastings Centre, Hastings

Quite a lot it seems!

The Huguenots, originally French protestants, fled persecution in catholic France in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is estimated that over 50,000 came to the British Isles bringing their skills in finance and arts. The talk will deal with three main Art areas, the baroque style of Versailles, the silk weaving industry, and the silversmiths and ceramicists.
Our speaker, Vivienne Lawes, is an art historian, curator, author and journalist with over 25 years’ experience in the art market. She teaches at several Higher Education institutions, including the University of the Arts London, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, the City & Guilds of London Art School, SOAS (University of London) and Imperial College.
In January 2021 she received the Geoffrey Bond Bursary for Art, an annual prize awarded by the Worshipful Company of Educators to an “outstanding educator” nominated by their institution.
