Adult Learning at
Hogarth's House

Our new public programming will expand opportunities for learning with talks and workshops. 


Our expanded talks programme will cover a range of topics that touch on Hogarth, other residents of the House, Georgian life and gardening.

Virtual series: Midday Modern Conversations

Members of our team are having conversations with specialists and experts on a range of intriguing topics including: 18th century lapdogs, printing, mulberry trees and more! Our conversations will, we hope be a little more coherent than those taking place in the Hogarth work that was the inspiration for the series name.  Videos available on our YouTube channel and below. Podcast available from
