Spring lecture 2019

Adrian Barlow’s latest book, published January 2019, offers detailed discussions of Kempe’s work, with a strong focus on particular windows, themes and relationships. Comparisons and contrasts between Kempe glass and that of other firms (Morris and Co., Burlison and Grylls, Christopher Whall etc.) lead to a concluding evaluation of his legacy and standing today.

Adrian will be giving the Spring Lecture at the Art Workers Guild and will share his knowledge and research of windows of Kemp to an audience who may already have strong ‘marmite’ opinions. An interesting evening is in store.

Copies of Espying Heaven will be for sale on the night.

Reflections on 30 years of Glass

Speaker Martin Donlin

We are delighted that the award winning architectural glass artist Martin Donlin will be giving the Summer Lecture.

Martin has been working in glass, colour and light since his student days in Swansea. He is a consummate  artist, comfortable with the decoration of enormous spaces in public as well as private buildings worldwide.

Somehow he is able to include complex imagery and information within a radiantly beautiful addition to almost any style of building using glass each time to suit and enhance the space.

This lecture will be a fascinating learning curve for us all.

500 Years of Stained Glass with Martin Harrison

6 Queen Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AR The Hall 18:15 Location

500 Years of Stained Glass with Martin Harrison

In Suffolk Martin Harris has been trying to identify workshops, other than the well-known ones in Norwich, responsible for the region’s stained glass in the 15th century. This connects to local glass-painters in the early 19th century whose restorations of medieval glass have seldom been identified. Martin brings his findings to the Art Workers Guild and  shares them with the audience.

Theodora Salusbury: The Peacock Lady (1875-1956)
Speaker: Andrew Loutit

As a pupil of both Christopher Whall and Karl Parsons, Theodora Salusbury’s work is predictably colourful, but it is also characterised by her excellent drawing skills to produce particularly lifelike figures in her stained glass. She remains a relatively unknown artist and Andrew, her great-nephew, is seeking to establish a reputation more deserving of these skills.
