Grinling Gibbons – A virtuoso craftsman in wood

TEA TIME TALKS WITH NICHOLAS MERCHANT – A ZOOM LECTURE

Thursday 23rd September at 3.30pm

Cost: £10 per session

This year is the tercentenary of the birth of Grinling Gibbons and what better way to celebrate than with a webinar before an actual visit to the exhibition at Compton Verney. Gibbons arrived in London in about 1667 when the City was in the throes of a building boom as a result of the Great Fire.  After spending time in York he then settled in London where his great talents were “discovered”. He was a virtuoso craftsman and we will learn more about him in this talk.
