In this blog post we find out more about the essential conservation work the Friends of Kettle’s Yard have helped to support.

Thanks to the generous support of the Friends of Kettle’s Yard, we continue to be able to fund essential conservation work for our collection and provide care for many of our loved objects around the House.

Over the last few months, the work funded by the Friends has included upholstering three of our dining room chairs and the repair of the glass monstrance (religious devotional item, owned by Jim Ede) in the House.

Conservation work has included the design and fabrication of a new mount for Naum Gabo’s Linear Bas Relief (1956), the remounting of Elisabeth Vellacott’s Bare Trees (circa 1960), and the treatment for another of Vellacott’s work, Hills and Entangled Trees (1976), following water damage.

This support has also enabled the careful examination, remounting and conservation of our new acquisition, The Play Ground (1928), by Christopher Wood. Bequeathed by Ian Mylles with Art Fund support, 2021, the drawing joins the largest public collection of works by the British artist and is now on display in the lower extension. Find out more about the acquisition here.

All the money raised by the Friends of Kettle’s Yard goes towards supporting Kettle’s Yard House and Gallery, the collection, the exhibitions and the extensive learning and community programmes.
