Our first-ever virtual Annual Meeting will feature two presentations with a brief business meeting between them.
The first, A Transferware Journey in India, will be presented by TCC president Scott Hanson and TCC vice-president Michael Sack. Following a brief business meeting, we will share Gaye Blake-Roberts’ presentation on Britain’s Development of the Transfer Printing Process in the 18th Century and How it Changed the Industry, video recorded at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Birmingham, AL. Gaye, now retired, was Curator at the Wedgwood Museum in Barlaston, England and is currently an honorary senior research fellow with the V&A Research Institute. Members will receive a link to the zoom presentation a few days before.
