Study days include:

  • British Baroque: an exploration of how Britain adopted this magnificent and courtly style

Study days can be tailored to your interests, on request.

"Yours was one of our best talks.  It greatly enthused our members, who emerged hugely energised at the end, full of praise.  You pitched it at exactly the right level and put it over with great authority."

David Howells, Chair, Art Friends Warwickshire
