Eric Knowles, Antiques Roadshow regular expert and TV personality, is returning to Neroche DFAS for another fascinating day of lectures. This one will focus on Art Deco and will be held on Tuesday July 8th at Monk’s Yard, Horton Cross, Ilminster TA19 9PT.

There will be three sessions through the day:
Art Deco and all that Jazz – an overview of a style that evolved after the First Great War as a reaction to Art Nouveau in both Europe and the USA.

The British Approach – this lecture examines the influence of both Art Deco and the resultant Art Moderne style that emphasised form before decoration.

Rene Lalique, Master Glassmaker – this legendary French designer was the premier Art Nouveau jeweller, but in the Art Deco period he was the master glassmaker supreme.

Tickets are £35 (NADFAS members) and £40 (Non-members) to include coffee/tea on arrival and departure, and a light buffet lunch.
