About Pollokshields Heritage Lecture Series 2017-18

Tuesday, 14th November 2017: From Roses to Squares - interior stencilling from the turn of the century to the Deco period
Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw

Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw will be talking about the evolution of designs in interior stencilling from the turn of the century to the 1920’s, taking examples from the schemes in which she has been involved. She will look at trends and fashions and show schemes designed by some of the best artists for the well-to-do new “entrepreneurs” of Victorian/Edwardian times and later. She will describe the challenges she has to face when recreating some of those schemes and give an insight into domestic stencilling in Glasgow. She will also be able to discuss local sources and give basic pointers on personal projects.

Tuesday, 16th January 2018: Alexander Thomson 2017 - his bicentennial year
Sally White

Sally White, Director and Secretary of the Alexander Thomson Society, will be looking back over the Bicentenary events of 2017 and the scope of the Alexander Thomson Society’s achievements in extending awareness of ‘Greek Thomson’ and his architecture. The challenge now facing the Society is how to build on this past year to achieve its aims and respond to the interest that has been generated.
