early stage career development

In 2012 the Grants Committee, as a new initiative, began to run a successful programme of free early evening study sessions at museums, galleries and auction houses offering the close inspection and discussion of furniture in an informal setting.

These sessions are intended for those considered to be at an early stage of their career development (junior museum/heritage curators and conservators, MA/PhD students and young professionals in the trade) unless otherwise shown in the details of the event.

Recent events have included:

  • A visit to the conservation workshops of the Royal Collection
  • A visit to Christie's to view an important collection of 19th Century French furniture
  • A visit to Masterpiece

Current events:

Details of future events will be placed here. If you would like to be placed on the mailing list for these events or to apply for any of the current events please contact the FHS Grants Secretary, Jill Bace, at grants@furniturehistorysociety.org
