Eric Gill Sculptor
Hidden Gems in Bradford
3.30 pm Saturday 2 November at 3.30pm
St Cuthbert's Church, Wilmer Road, BRADFORD BD9 4RX
Eric Gill was at the peak of his fame in the 1930s when he agreed to help his friend Father John O'Connor to make some sculptures for St Cuthbert's RC church. There are 16 examples of his work in the church and there will be a unique opportunity for people to view them and hear about the sculptor himself from an expert, Rev Graham Kent. Graham, a Methodist minister, studied Eric Gill and wrote his thesis about him.
Refreshments will be served afterwards.
