Talk: Why is Farnham a Craft Town?

What's on

Dates & times

  • free, no booking required

Join us for a free talk presented by Graham Mollart, long-standing member of the Craft Town Committee, celebrating Farnham’s rich craft history over the past 150 years.

Farnham is the first town in England and only the third region in Europe to be given 'World Craft City' status. But this transformation didn’t happen overnight.

Graham will be focusing on Farnham’s recent crafting history, starting with the opening of the Farnham Pottery in 1873. This richly illustrated talk will explore the people and groups who have shaped Farnham into the Craft Town it is today.

There’s no need to pre-book this event, so please just turn up on the day.

Part of the museum's Craft Event Programme which accompanies the current exhibition A History of Farnham Crafts.
