All are welcome to Brough House, Maitland: Presentation by Claire Philp, Estate Cartographer - Friday 22 May, 7pm
This unique and painstaking work combines the accuracy of map making with the beauty of a work of art. Claire is the only known estate cartographer in Australia and one of only a very few in the world. She has fulfilled commissions throughout England, Europe, South Africa and Australia. She sees her maps as a way of preserving for posterity the work of the original pioneering families before the properties are sold out of the family. Claire will tell us how she came to this rare profession and explain and illustrate the methods she employs to produce each individual work. Organised by the Friends of Grossman House. Refreshments from 6.30pm before the presentaion. Admission: National Trust members $15 or non-members $20. Brough House, Church St, Maitland.
