Chatsworth and its estate are designed spaces, crafted and re-interpreted over five centuries. The house and landscape, furniture, objects and artworks have served as inspiration to generations of artists, designers and craftspeople.
Join Senior Curator of Programme Alex Hodby and Curator of Decorative Art Sash Giles as they discuss the history of design at Chatsworth, examining the idea that the distinction between historic and contemporary design is not a rigid boundary but an ongoing conversation.
This year our winter talks will take place in our garden studio, The Old Potting Shed. Please arrive from 10.45am at the top garden gates where a member of staff will direct you to the venue. The Old Potting Shed is step free and has accessible facilities. If you have any questions about accessibility please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
