Talk – Ornamental Cast Iron Lace
November 29, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Hotham History Project invites you to a talk on Ornamental Cast Iron Lace – by Robin Vowels.
In the 1860s and 70s one of Hotham’s mayors, William Hutchison, operated a foundry in Little Bourke Street where he made some of the ornamental iron lace that still graces houses around North and West Melbourne today.
Although he was well known at the time Hutchison’s work does not carry a maker’s name so Robin Vowels from RMIT decided to work out (if he could) which pieces were from Hutchison’s foundry.
Come and hear what clues he used and what he found out.
