Introduction to Fans: A Beginners’ Workshop with Mary Cooper

25th June 2019

Tennants’ Fan Consultant and Fan Circle International Officer, Mary Cooper, will be running a one-day workshop giving a fascinating introduction to antique fans. During the day you will learn how to identify different types of fan by shape and material used, learn the basics of determining age and relevant fashions, and discuss factors to consider when starting a fan collection, such as balancing quantity and price and identifying subject matter. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and in the afternoon you will have the chance to consolidate everything you have learnt in the morning during a private view of the very special fans in the June Fan Sale.

The day includes refreshments and a light lunch, and an optional private tour ‘Behind the Scenes at Tennants’ at the end of the day.
