In August the Society is joining forces once more with our friends at Lyon & Turnbull for a special preview of the Scottish Applied Arts sale. For the third year in a row, Fellows and guests will have the opportunity to hear from experts on Scottish craftsmanship before enjoying a private viewing of the Scottish Silver & Applied Arts auction.
In anticipation of this popular event, we have put together a special collection of books and articles to whet your appetite. A special discount will be available to attendees wishing to purchase the books listed.
Happy reading, and we look forward to seeing you on 8 August*!
