The Hidden Language of Monuments
This course is full but sometimes we do have people that drop out or we run a second course if there is enough demand. It is definitely worth putting your name on the wait list as we offer places to wait listed children very often. Send your name and details to Patricia Morse and we will add your name to the waiting list.
How and why do we represent people after their life has ended? How should we interpret the bowed head and other gestures that we see all around Lincoln Cathedral? A powerful iconography exists when we produce memorials for both the humble and the great.
You will discuss, explore and design monuments that celebrate the living as well as the past. A day of learning a language to celebrate living and deciding what is worth celebrating, remembering and setting in stone for the future.
