The age of Thomas Chippendale, father (1718-1779) and son (1742-1822), coincided with the greatest period in the development of wallpaper in England. But what patterns were available? How did patrons make their choices? And how were they hung?

These and other questions will be answered by Anthony Wells-Cole (formerly Senior Curator at Temple Newsam) using the fascinating collection of historic wallpapers formed over the past 30 years - including more than 400 fragments from Temple Newsam alone - which he is cataloguing.

This study day will also give those attending an opportunity to tour the house in his company and see for themselves the impact that facsimile wallpaper reprints have made in the restoration of the house.

Tickets are £40 each, which includes lunch and wine. Places are limited.

This is a joint event with the Chippendale Society.
