Symposium: The Rush Seated Chair: a celebration of past, present and future

Hugo Burge, at Marchmont House, has organised a two day symposium, to be held on 14th and 15th September 2018, on the rush seated chair in all its facets, from the material and the ways in which the rush seats were made, to the widespread variety of vernacular types – from the urban to the rural; from the country house to the cottage.  The event will conclude with a discussion on the place of the rush seated chair of why it is an interesting subject of study and whether it has a place in our lives today.
