Stained Glass Tour and Linocut Workshop
This workshop includes a guided tour of a display currently on view at St Peter's College: Ervin Bossányi: Stained Glass Artist.
A guided tour of the display by Dr Alison Ray (College Archivist) will be followed by a linocut workshop led by Dr Eleanor Baker and participants will produce their own linocut designs. Eleanor completed her DPhil in medieval material texts in 2022, and is currently working on a short anthology of book curses. Eleanor started linocutting as a lockdown hobby, and is inspired by late medieval woodcuts, folk horror, and the natural world.
Attendance is free, but booking is required as space is limited. Please contact Alison Ray to reserve a place by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ervin Bossányi (1891-1975) now best known for his stained glass, was an immensely productive and versatile artist. Born in Hungary, Bossányi was twice exiled, first in Germany, and then after the rise of National Socialism, in England. His life and career were closely interwoven with major upheavals and events in European and world history of the 20th century. His artistic achievements range from small personal ornaments, interior decoration and textile designs, to paintings, friezes and stained glass windows in prestigious buildings such as Canterbury Cathedral and Washington National Cathedral in the USA. The Ervin Bossányi collection was generously gifted to St Peter’s College by the artist’s estate in 1996.
