Legacy: Two works about hope and memory

Tuesday 5th August - Sunday 2nd November

Normal Opening Hours


To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War One Crafts Council and Forty Hall & Estate present an exhibition of two contemporary craft installations under the 'Curate with Us' programme.

Legacy: Two works about hope and memory brings together two of the UK's most significant makers for the first time and offers quiet reflection on the collective and personal impact of loss, legacy, testimony and commemoration.

The two works 'Everyman's Dream' by Clare Twomey and Julian Stair's 'Reliquary for a Common Man', whilst not directly concerned with the First World War, offer a means of contemplating themes assocated with commemoration, rememberance and the significance of the First World War.



In 1947 I joined the 22nd Enfield Cub & Scout group. Someone in that group was friendly with the Parker-Bowles family and we were allowed to camp in the grounds of the Estate. I recall many adventurous happy weekends exploring the grounds
