Joining the Bewick Society
The aim of the Bewick Society is to promote an interest in the life and work of Thomas Bewick and related subjects, especially with regard to wood-engraving.
The Society publishes a journal called the Cherryburn Times, normally twice a year. This provides a forum for the activities of the Society and keeps members informed about the latest research into the life and work of Bewick and his apprentices.
Members publish articles about their own special interests where relevant to the Society. Local and national experts are invited to give talks to the Society on specialist research. The Society also organises introductory talks on Bewick and his work.
The Society arranges visits to special collections, some of which are not normally open to the general public.
It encourages the development of facilities for conservation and display of Bewick related materials, including wood-engraving as practised by those following in Bewick's footsteps.
Membership of the Society gives free admission to Cherryburn, where Thomas Bewick was born, now in the care of the National Trust.
