SEMINAR 2019 25-27 October at the Holiday Inn, Farnborough.

BQSG 2019 Seminar

Holiday Inn, Farnborough, GU14 6AZ

25- 27 October 2019

Whatever else may happen in 2019, one reliable source of interest and stimulation is the annual BQSG Seminar.

Although the Research Group is still planning the content of our 2019 Seminar, the Committee is pleased to announce that the Seminar will be held at the Holiday Inn, Lynchford Road, Farnborough, Hampshire, GU14 6AZ.  This 140-bed hotel has free wi-fi, a fitness centre, indoor pool and ample parking.  It is 6 miles (approx. 17 minutes by car) from the location of our Friday study sessions in Farnham, Surrey.

The study sessions on Friday 25 October are at the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, GU9 7DS.  Here we will see a range of items (textile and documentary) from the Crafts Study Centre’s own collection, in addition to a selection of items from the (neighbouring) Textiles Collection of UCA Farnham.  As well as items from the Muriel Rose Bequest (which feature in both collections), we will be able to take a close look at a very wide range of textiles.

As our visit coincides with Farnham’s “October Craft Month”, there will be much else to see of interest, including “The Crafts Study Centre @ 50” exhibition and special exhibits at other town centre locations, such as the New Ashgate Gallery and Farnham Museum.  Further information will be provided when available.

The Crafts Study Centre is adjacent to two large pay & display car parks and is a 15 to 20 minutes’ walk from Farnham Station.  For those travelling by public transport, please indicate on the booking form if you are likely to require transport from Farnham back to the hotel in Farnborough on Friday afternoon, as shared transport may be organised (at a charge).

Please book as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.  To meet hotel requirements, I must have received your booking and payment by Friday 6 September, 2019
