ReCollection is an oral history archive that reflects how people think and feel about Kettle’s Yard. You can listen to extracts from interviews with people of all ages, some of whom have known Kettle’s Yard for decades, some of whom were visiting for the first time. Interviewees range from family members of Kettle’s Yard creator Jim Ede to former curators and artists who have exhibited at Kettle’s Yard such as Edmund de Waal or people who visited as students like Sir Nicholas Serota. The clips cover different aspects of Kettle’s Yard, so you can discover more about works from the collection, the architecture and history of Kettle’s Yard or what Jim and his wife Helen’s daily routines where like when they were living in the house. You can search by a key word, browse by theme or see clips from particular interviewees.  We hope to conduct more interviews and expand the resource in future.

We have recorded over 100 hours of interviews, if you’d like to research in the oral history archive or if you have a memory of Kettle’s Yard that you’d like to share, get in touch via or ring 01223 748100.
