The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers has arranged a special exhibition and lecture about the work of the late Andrew Varah, brother of our own Master, Felicity Harding. The exhibition will include a number of items loaned specially from private collections and, particularly, four "Infinity" models which can only be fully appreciated in person.
Infinity Models derive from an Italian concept first conceived in the Renaissance period. By using special glass any object placed within the actual model repeats and multiplies hundreds of times. For example, a single lit candle will appear as hundreds of candles.
The Furniture Makers would be delighted to welcome Spectacle Makers and their guests to this unique event. The evening will run from 6.15-8.15pm on Thursday 12 April 2018 at Furniture Makers' Hall, Austin Friars, in the heart of the City. The cost, including a reception with drinks and canapés, is £25 per head.
Please see the booking form sent via email on 19 February or email the Clerk to book.
