Join experts to hear more about how wallpaper has been revitalised by contemporary designers, from domestic interiors to art installations.

This Study Day, which marks the 25th anniversary of The Wallpaper History Society, features a mix of speakers from a wide range of disciplines. It looks at the changes in the ways that wallcoverings have been produced, exhibited, marketed, and conserved in the last 25 years and, in doing so, provides a visual feast for anyone interested in wallpaper in all its manifestations.

Speakers are:

  • Joanna Banham (V&A)
  • Christine Woods (Whitworth Art Gallery)
  • Trevor Keeble (Kingston University)
  • Mary Schoeser (Central St Martins)
  • Andrew Bush (National Trust)
