Florence Camm : An Edwardian Painter and Stained Glass Sculptor Sally Hoban Thursday 28 March 2019

Unfortunately, the scheduled lecture by Peter Warwick has had to be cancelled.

We are very  fortunate to secure the services of Sally Hoban who was with us in January lecturing on Enamelling. There can be no doubt that Sally will be an excellent replacement. her subject will be :

Florence Camm: An Edwardian Painter and Stained Glass Designer’. 

Florence Camm was a talented 20th century stained glass designer and painter but her work is little known today, despite receiving international recognition and prizes in her lifetime.  This lecture reveals her life and work.  Florence was born in Smethwick in the West Midlands in 1874 and worked right up until her death in 1960.  She trained at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art and her stained glass can be found in churches and private buildings throughout the world including Australia and New Zealand.  Florence also produced exquisite metalware and beautiful watercolour paintings.
