    Roving Chapter - North America



    The Bacardi Cup, a world class sailing regatta will be held on this same weekend.  A great destination worth traveling to before winter's end.

    • Monday, May 09, 2016
    • Montcalm Hotel, London


    Event Highlights

    Opening our convention will be a discussion between a few experts and advanced collectors as to their top ten netsuke carvers. What they are drawn to and why?  It has been many years since this discussion was held previously and we will see if opinions and tastes have changed. We hope it inspires a lot of discussion among all delegates throughout the convention of who their favourites are and what aspects of the netsuke carving art they are most drawn to.

    In addition to holding the usual workshops, we will be holding a series of Master Classes which will focus on the connoisseurship of sagemono.

    Confirmed speakers include Julia Hutt, Guy de Lasteyrie du Saillant, Rosemary Bandini, Sem Djelal, Heinz and Else Kress and Paul Moss.

    The evening of May 6th, there will be a Welcome Drinks held at Bonham’s (New Bond Street) to showcase pieces in their upcoming Japanese auction.

    The following morning of May 7th, there will be a private breakfast and lecture by Dr Nicole Coolidge Rousmaniere at the British Museum.

    The final evening on May 9th will be a sit down dinner at The Crypt to conclude the event.

    NB: This event is by RSVP only as there is limited seating. Please indicate whether you will be attending the dinner on your registration form.

    Venue

    The convention will be held at the Montcalm Hotel, located near Marble Arch.

    There will be two large exhibitors rooms flanking a central lecture hall and leading into a foyer where lunch and afternoon tea will be served. In addition, we have two breakout rooms where workshops will be held.

    The entire venue is wheelchair accessible.  Map
