The committee are delighted to announce our next annual conference.

The 10th Annual Cambridge Conference will be returning on Friday April 12th 2019.

From Pre-Raphaelites to Arts & Crafts will follow our chronological progress through architectural style.

These two styles, and the various artists and craftsmen associated with them, are often conflated.

The conference will attempt to disentangle popular misconceptions through a series of fascinating talks given by curators, historians, conservators and paint analysts focusing of the interiors and artists of both movements. We are delighted to welcome Tessa Wild who will be signing copies of her book William Morris and his Palace of Art.

We will return to the McCrum Lecture Theatre, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, on Friday 12th April for this one day conference. As usual not only do we have a full day of talks but have arranged a tour of the grade II listed Church Rate Corner, one of the last Baillie Scott houses in Cambridge. The house is privately owned and hidden from view by gardens.

The evening concludes with a leisurely punt down the Cam followed by dinner at La Mimosa. Bookings are slightly different this year as we ask delegates to indicate both interest in the punt and dinner on booking (see eventbrite).

Full details and booking info are included in the Icon events page
