Wallace Collection

New teaching partnership with the Wallace Collection

4 September 2019

The University of Buckingham is delighted to announce a new teaching partnership with the Wallace Collection. The Wallace Collection houses one of the greatest collections of French Decorative Arts in the world. The University and Museum will be joining forces to collaborate on the teaching of the MA in Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors, which focuses on French and British Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors from 1660 to circa 1830.

Dr Caroline McCaffrey-Howarth, an expert on French eighteenth-century decorative arts and nineteenth-century collecting of Sevres porcelain, has been appointed as the University of Buckingham lecturer for this area of study. Dr McCaffrey-Howarth completed her PhD at University of Leeds and has previously taught at other establishments focusing on decorative design courses such as the V&A/Royal College of Art MA in the History of Design.

Many of the classes are based at the Wallace Collection and will be taught alongside the Museum’s curatorial staff.  Full and part-time places still available for September 2019. For more details please contact Jeremy Howard (Programme Director) or Matilda Eason-Jarvis on +44 (0)1280 820227.
