THE ARTS SOCIETY HELMSLEY: From Desktop to Bureau - Writing Furniture from C16 to C18

While studying for his first degree, Janusz worked part time in an antiques shop which he came to take over as proprietor. Such was his interest in collecting that he became known as the dealer who bought but seldom sold.
His lectures seek to explain furniture in terms of the skills and materials employed in its design and construction and also its socio-economic significance. He has lectured on antique furniture since 1975. Janusz Karczewski-Slowikowski gave a lecture in Helmsley on Thomas
Chippendale in 1998 and another on Robert Adam in 2004: a return visit is long overdue.

Lectures are held in the Helmsley Arts Centre auditorium at 7.30 pm
Annual membership costs £50 for nine lectures.
Visitors are welcome and are asked to make a suggested donation of £10.
