Lecture: Webb, the Wyndhams and Clouds

Tuesday 23 January — Sold out
6.30pm to 8pm. A lecture to be given by Caroline Dakers. Second in our Private Realms 3 lecture series organised by Steven Brindle.

Percy Wyndham and his wife Madeline were at the centre of the group of cultivated aristocrats known as the Souls. After buying the Clouds estate in Wiltshire in 1876, they commissioned the celebrated architect Philip Webb to design them a house. Clouds was one of the fullest expressions of Arts and Crafts taste, including work by Morris, Burne-Jones and Dearle, as well as Webb himself. Dr Caroline Dakers, historian and Professor at Central St Martin’s, and author of Clouds, The Biography of a House (1993), tells us the story of this key work of the Arts and Crafts movement. At the Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1 at 6.30pm. Doors open at 6pm and close at 6.25pm. Wine will be available before the lectures (not included in ticket prices). The venue is conveniently placed for Holborn and Russell Square tube stations and numerous bus services. Tickets £11 on the door, if available, or cheaper if you book 6 or more.
