Charleston Visit

On 4th July we are planning to visit Charleston, country home of Vanessa Bell and the Bloomsbury group. The visit will be an opportunity to view the exhibition”Dorothy Hepworth and Patricia Preece: An Untold Story.” Archival photographs and letters highlight the untold story of the pair’s collaborative approach to making and selling Dorothy’s work. Objects document their life outside of the studio, detailing Preece’s unconventional marriage to Stanley Spencer while simultaneously sharing a life with Hepworth, their journeys in Paris and their final residence in Cookham.

We plan to take a coach from Cookham Station leaving at 10am on the 4th and returning from Charleston at 4pm. Since coaches are in great demand at this time of year, we need to make sure that we can book a suitably sized one. I would be grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible whether you would be interested in coming to Charleston. Please reply to me, Margaret Pleming, at margaretpleming@gmail.com.
