The Pitman Painters - a talk by WEA Derby
Location: The Mill, Lodge Lane, Derby, DE1 3HB
Event times: 1:30pm to 3pm
The Pitmen Painters were a group of students who started an art appreciation class with the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) in 1934. Their story has become the subject of a successful play by Lee Hall and their work is on permanent display in the Woodhorn Colliery museum in Ashington. Who were the ‘pitmen painters’ and why is the work they produced significant today? This session will be of interest to anyone who would like to know more about the Ashington group’s work and anyone planning to see the play at Derby Theatre.
Date: Monday 20th May 2013
Time: 1.30 – 3pm
