In May 2021, we were asked to give an online lecture to the British & Irish Furniture Makers Online (BIFMO) and the Furniture History Society (FHS).

The history of campaign furniture, the different types of makers and those who used it along with its eventual demise are all discussed and well illustrated. Sean is introduced by Adriana Turpin of BIFMO and, following the lecture, questions are taken from the audience.

At the beginning of February 2021, we gave a lecture to Stow Civic Society entitled Journey To Another World. This was an adapted version of a lecture that we gave during Stow Art Week to accompany our exhibition Illuminating India.

The lecture was recorded and can now be seen our You Tube Channel at this link:

Journey To Another World

The talk lasts about 50 minutes and in it we look at how people travelled to India in the 19th century, who went, what they took with them to make the long journey more bearable and the companies that outfitted them.
