Beatrix Potter and the Westcountry

Emma Laws – Westcountry Colours: Beatrix Potter in Devon and Cornwall

This is a new talk given by Emma Laws (who used to be the Curator at the V&A and now lives in Devon and is Director of Collections at the Devon and Exeter Institution.

The lecture is called ‘Westcountry Colours: Beatrix Potter in Devon and Cornwall’ and is fascinating and entertaining, with lots of quotes from letters and Journal entries written during Potter holidays to the West country (and, of course, it features quite a bit about Little Pig Robinson).
