SPAB Lecture Wallpaper in Irish rural buildings

6th Oct, 2021
Online event

The eighth lecture in the 10-part online series, 'Conserving Irish Vernacular Houses.' The series is part of SPAB Ireland's Vernacular Irish Buildings Campaign 2021. This talk will look at the evidence for wallpaper use in rural buildings, linking its demographic spread to the development of the industry, from hand block printing to the establishment of the Kildare Wallpaper Factory in the 1930s. Ways of identifying and dating wallpapers will be explained, and issues which arise in the conservation and reproduction of wallpapers will be examined.
