    HUGUENOT HISTORY AND CRAFTS IN WATERFORD

    Monday, November 6th, 2023

    The conference on Huguenot history and crafts at the Medieval Museum in Waterford ON November 11 is open to everyone and promises to be fascinating.  The enormous contribution made by these Protestant refugees to Ireland in the 1600’s and 1700’s resonates to this day.  There will be a particular focus on gold and silversmiths, clock and watchmakers and cabinet making and map making will be touched on two.  Speakers include Dr. Thomas Sinsteden, Professor Geraldine Sheridan, John Bowen, Dr. Tessa Murdoch and Julian Walton.  Book on  www.waterfordtreasuresbookings.com/Event/HUGUENOT
