Free Fallingwater Lecture
Grab your lunch and join London-based textile designer Eleanor Pritchard and Fallingwater’s registrar Rebecca Hagen as they explore the house’s textile collection.
Representing a diverse range of periods and cultures, these textiles played an important role in the Kaufmann family’s decoration of Fallingwater.
Rebecca delves into the textile’s history while Eleanor discusses how they informed her process for designs created exclusively for Fallingwater.
Eleanor Pritchard spent a week at Fallingwater in December 2018 and co-curated the 2019 exhibition Eleanor Pritchard: Framing a View onsite in the Speyer Gallery. All of her blankets and cushions are designed, developed and sampled in her London studio and are woven in the British Isles. Her pieces are sold in stores throughout the world and on her website at eleanorpritchard.com
Rebecca Hagen is the registrar at Fallingwater where she oversees the care and documentation of the museum collection and archive.
