The Chalk, Cherries and Chairs Landscape Partnership Scheme invites you to celebrate the working women of the Chilterns at an inspiring conference for International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8th March 2023.
The conference will celebrate the women who excelled in some of the traditional crafts, skills and work found in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where record books tell us that the development of a modern local economy was driven by the men of the High Wycombe furniture trade, agricultural merchants and landowning farmers. The lives and critical importance of contributions made by the working women in this area has often been overlooked.
Join us in the stunning surrounds of Missenden Abbey, a former medieval abbey with a history of over 800 years to explore the work of the women past, present and future living in and around the woodlands and grass meadows of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
From weavers and sculptors, to historians and policy makers, we’re excited to have a host of experts presenting and demonstrating as part of our one day conference on International Women’s Day 8th March.
