THE SHAKERS:

THEIR BELIEFS, ARCHITECTURE AND ARTEFACTS
A Study Day presented by John Ericson

Study Days commence at 10.15am and close at 3.30pm. Lunch, wine, soft drinks, tea and coffee are now included within the ticket price.

John was formerly a lecturer at the University of Bath. He has worked extensively overseas as an educational consultant and has given lectures all over the world.

John tells the extraordinary story of the Shakers of North America, exploring their beginnings, what they believed and how they lived their lives before examining examples of their wonderful buildings and furniture. For it is only with such an understanding of their devout faith and way of life that we can begin to appreciate their intriguing legacy.
