An exploration of the artistic skills of he Huguenots

Sue Jackson’s lecture explores the advanced artistic skills of the Huguenots, huge numbers of French immigrants into 17th century England, who settled in EastAnglia, Macclesfield, Canterbury and London. Innovators in silk weaving, as silversmiths, clock makers, opticians, bankers, gilders, ironworkers and horticulturalists, they left an enduring legacy. Paul de Lamerie, Samuel Courtauld and Jean Tijou were among the most celebrated.
