The Arts Society Pewsey Vale committee


Having sound (audio) is vital for our monthly lectures.

We urgently need a volunteer to support the Sound System team - not to be a committee member but be available as backup when needed.


Please do help - Colin has many hats on the committee and would greatly appreciate someone to be a back-up for the sound systems at our meetings.

Please contact Colin Paul if you are willing to offer your expertise occasionally.

Ultimate Luxury: the story of Chinese wallpapers in English country houses 

Lecture by Hanne Sutcliffe, a Council Member of Oriental Ceramics Society and Guide, lecturer and researcher on sixteen tours to China.

Chinese wallpapers were an absolute status symbol among the aristocrats and upper classes. A room or more decorated in 'China Paper' was a must in the late 17th century and 18th century. The imported painted Chinese sheets were auctioned in London and were extremely expensive. Each sheet had either exotic flower and bird patterns or scenes of 'life in China'. Many English stately homes have wonderful rooms decorated with exquisite 'China papers' such as: Harewood House, Temple Newsham, Erdig, Chalke Manor and the Chinese Pavillion in Brighton and many more.

They all have outstanding exotic China paper rooms. There are tales to tell on how they arrived in the first place.
