Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Join Andrew Smith, a long-serving Visitor Assistant and resident furniture enthusiast at Kettle's Yard, for a talk on the often-overlooked pieces of furniture and hidden objects in the house.

The talk will look at some of the fascinating stories behind each piece and why they are so important to Kettle’s Yard.

You will learn about the history of various pieces of furniture, how Jim Ede acquired them and how they compliment the space.

From the fireback hidden in the darkness of the sitting room’s fireplace, to the relationship between an LS Lowry painting and an adjacent Windsor chair, this talk will be a fascinating insight into the subtle ways furniture and unassuming objects contribute to the character of Kettle’s Yard.
