Saturday 14 October 11am

St Andrew's Church, Talbot Road, Roker,
Sunderland, SR6 9PT.

A talk by internationally acclaimed calligrapher

'The Force Behind the Forms'
Three lettering artists and St Andrew's, Roker:
Edward Johnston, and Eric Gill and Max Gill.

St Andrew's Roker is unusual in having commissioned lettering from three major artists of the Arts and Crafts movement. In his lecture Ewan will show how the work in St Andrew's relates to other work they did. He outlines the fascinating careers of these three remarkable individuals, one of whom shaped the lettering of our capital city via his work for the London Underground,
and another of whom has given us the identity of the type used by the BBC,
though that is all about to change!

NB: Northumbrian Scribes calligraphy Exhibition 'Living Letters' will still be on show, and until 31st October.

St. Andrew's is just off the sea front, beside Roker Park, with a big square tower. You can park in Talbot Road or other side streets.

Next workshop: Saturday 21st October

with Helen Hayman.
