'I remember asking my father for a copy of the plans of a small, old house at Snowshill, near Broadway, which he had bought. These I studied with great care as they gave me a valuable link with home...I wrote detailed reports on different aspects of the planning and the carrying out of the repair work.' (A Designer's Trade by Gordon Russell).
This was 1916 and Gordon was writing from the Trenches in France of the house which was to become his father Sydney's family home. The current owners, who are Friends of the Museum, have generously offered to host this early summer drinks gathering.
This event is for Friends of the Gordon Russell Design Museum. If you would be interested in signing up, and having access to this and other exclusive events throughout the year, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
