Tour of Grandison & Son and Traquair House with SPAB Scotland AGM
Saturday 18th March 2017
Join the SPAB Scotland AGM at the Eastgate Arts Centre in Peebles, followed by an exclusive tour od Grandison's Plaster Workshops and a visit to Traquair House.
The afternoon will begin with a short AGM to be held in the Eastgate Arts Centre in Peebles, a church converted to great acclaim by Richard Murphy Architects in 2004.
The small market town of Peebles is home to another hidden gem – the Grandisons Plaster Workshops, where Leonard Grandison has been hand crafting decorative mouldings in lime plaster for decades. There will be two tour groups (numbers are limited unfortunately) who will get to view the workshops and the fascinating collection of historic plaster samples and small museum, and hear Leonard talk about his work.
Finally, an 'out of season' visit to the very fine Traquair House only a few miles from Peebles has been arranged, in order to view decorative plasterwork in situ.
Three types of ticket will be available:
AGM Only Ticket: FREE
Full Package Ticket: £20 (AGM & Refreshments at Eastgate Arts Centre, visit to Grandisons and guided tour of Traquair House)
