In 2019 major exhibitions and other events the world over will be celebrating the 200th birthday of the writer and artist John Ruskin. Peter Burman has been exploring Ruskin's thought and writings for most of his adult life, and is a Director of the Guild of St George, founded by Ruskin in 1871. If you care about the environment and about the beauty in landscape, traditional buildings, hand-made crafts and paintings you will enjoy this talk and the discussion it aims to spark.
12.30pm meet for optional lunch (book via Roy) at the Pepper Tree Thai restaurant, 19 Clapham Common South Side, SW4 7AB. before visiting a Victorian former chapel dramatically transformed as a work of art to create an environment that wholly celebrates the Irish poet and author.
