Price includes a tour of Eythrope, two course set lunch and tour of the exhibition "Inspired by Waddesdon" with Kate Malone.

We are delighted to announce that BADA Friends Director Anne Green has been able to organise an exclusive tour of ceramic artist Kate Malone's "Inspired by Waddesdon" exhibition, to be conducted by Kate herself.

Kate has become a household name through her recent work as a judge on BBC2's Great Pottery Throw Down but is more famous in the art world for her beautifully constructed ceramics in complex shapes, often based on forms such as fruit and seeds.

Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the UK, USA and Europe and by her own admission she admits to being "addicted to making."

The Waddesdon exhibition showcases 40 pieces of new work, inspired by the private Eythrope gardens and her exploration of the historic Rothschild Collections, including Sevres porcelain, works on paper and textiles within the house.

Eythrope is not open to the general public and was created by Alice de Rothschild in the late 19th century.

The Friends event will start at 10.30am, with a meeting point at Waddesdon Manor, before catch the Waddesdon bus to Eythrope where Head Gardener Suzie Hanson will provide a tour of the gardens,

This will be followed by lunch at Waddesdon, ahead of meeting with Kate Malone at the Coach House. We will not be able to visit the house on this occasion, but we are planning another visit in 2017 which will include a visit to the Rothschild Archives.

Tickets for this event are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. To secure your place contact Friends Director Anne Green on 020 7581 5259 or email anne@bada.org
