Hammersmith Utopia

As part of our series of illustrated talks highlighting the artistic heritage of Hammersmith, Professor Ruth Levitas joins us to tell us about the Hampshire House Workshops which were on Hampshire Hog Lane in Hammersmith (between the River and King Street) and the artists associated with the project including Eric Gill, Edward Johnston, Frank Brangwyn and May Morris.

The Greenside Arts Lectures are part of our fundraising to restore the 1952 Gordon Cullen mural at Greenside Primary School. The lecture takes place at Greenside Primary School, Westville Road, W12 9PT, in the hall of our Grade II* listed Goldfinger building.

Before the talk we will show the short film, featuring Alan Powers, Chair of the 20th Century Society, talking about the very fine Cullen mural and the Goldfinger school. Ruth’s talk will show how the dreams of Hampshire House, rooted in the philosophy of William Morris, still live in Goldfinger’s vision of primary education. There will also be the opprotunity to view the mural itself.

Doors open at 7.00pm for pre-talk drinks.

£6 on the door, no need to book. (Cash or cheques only)

Any questions please email me.
