York Artworkers Association April Meeting

The next York Artworkers Association meeting is on Monday 7th April at 7.30pm at Jacob's Well, Trinity Lane, off Micklegate.

April's talk will be given by Trish Hart.  The topic this month is The Hart Silversmiths Trust Drawings Collection Conservation Project.  This aims to preserve the work of George Henry Hart, a silversmith to the Guild of Handicraft.  There are over 3,000 drawings in this collection, all in need of cleaning, cataloguing, scanning and archiving.

Trish Hart is George's granddaughter, and will be Project Managing this process on behalf of the Trust to oversee the establishment of this important archive.

Non members are very welcome and entry is only £5.  More information can be found at
