*SOLD OUT* Trust Talk: Preserving the Past, Creating the Future

Did you know that Rippon Lea is decorated with extant Japanese wallcoverings, whose original source was until recently unknown?

*Please note this event is now SOLD OUT, however as it’s a free event tickets may still be available on the night. Check this page for the latest updates*

Join our curator, Elizabeth Anya-Petrivna at Tasma Terrace for the second installment of our Trust Talk series, for a discussion on how a historical craft has been transformed into a contemporary object, underscoring a very long history of cultural exchange.

Since 2013, the National Trust has worked in collaboration with the Kinkarakami Institute of Tokyo to recreate a section of this paper to be installed alongside the old – creating a new relationship.

The project has revived artisan techniques that were once lost through both traditional and experimental approaches, and once completed, will see a new object in a new setting. The project aims to challenge static ‘hands-off’ display and rather emphasise change and process.

Ths is a FREE talk, however tickets are limited. Book now to save your seat.
