  • Bookbinding - an extraordinary example of binding a complete copy of Chaucer's works

    Drinks from 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.

    Description

    William Morris founded his Kelmscott Press in 1890 in order to save the fine art of hand printing in Britain. When in 1896 his last book, the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, was published, it was universally hailed as the greatest book of the age. It is a huge book, with illustrations by Burne Jones and decorations by Morris, and was printed at the press in Hammersmith over a four year period. Fewer than 400 copies were produced. In 2012 Dominic was presented with a copy in a poor binding, with a view to creating a contemporary artistic binding for it. This lecture is the record that process. He will give an overview of Morris and the Kelmscott Press, and then talk about his very demanding commission — from the early designs to the completion of the project four years later. This lecture is a step-by-step look at how fine bindings are made, as well as an insight into an extraordinary artistic journey. The completed binding has been donated to the National Art Library at the Victoria and Albert museum, an institution very close to William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement.

    Profile
    A bookbinder, artist and teacher, Dominic first learned bookbinding at 16 from Benedictine Monks at Douai Abbey in Berkshire and later at the London College of Printing. He has worked at the V&A, and for various binderies in London, New York and San Francisco, and spends part of the year teaching across the USA. He has his bindery in the Lake District, from where he travels across the UK teaching master classes and lecturing. He is Vice President of the Society of Bookbinders and was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2008. His binding work is mostly the restoration of antiquarian books and Design Bindings. He has won many prizes in the Designer Bookbinders competition, including both first prizes and the Mansfield Silver Medal in 2007. His bindings are in collections worldwide, including the British Library and the John Rylands Library in Manchester. In 2010 he bound a special copy of the winner of the Booker Prize which was presented to the author. In June 2013 he won first prize in the prestigious Sir Paul Getty International Bookbinding Competition. His winning binding was acquired by the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

  • Angela Saini – Superior

    As ethnic nationalism rises around the world, race science is experiencing a revival, fuelled by the abuse of data and facts by politically-motivated groups. The story of who humans are and how we evolved is being rewritten to suit their agendas.

    Even well-intentioned scientists, through their unconscious use of old-fashioned categories, betray their suspicion that race has some basis in biology. In truth, it is no more real than it was hundreds of years ago, when racial categories were invented and hardened by those in power.

    In Superior, award-winning author Angela Saini explores the concept of race, from its origins to the present day.

    Twickenham Cinema Club Present: Dazed and Confused

    Richard Linklater’s 90’s account of a group of 1976 high school teens seems like a superficial laid-back comedy, but is also an accomplished film that gradually draws you into the awkwardness of youth. With clever character development and a deftness of scriptwriting, it reveals a more complicated set of stories that sum up ‘coming of age’ with natural direction and confidence that made this film a cult favourite. Ben Affleck, Matthew McConnaughey and Parker Posey are just some of the actors making their early career highs.

    The Spider's Banquet, 'Festin de l'Araignée' Op 17 - Albert Roussel

    Beauty and cruelty in nature. Tuneful birds and deadly spiders. Soloist Eleanor Turner weaves a charming web in Patterson’s concerto for harp and strings. Respighi brings baroque imitations of bird song to today’s chamber orchestra and Roussel’s ballet music gives insects very human emotions with a surprising twist (spoiler alert). Mozart of course transcends all these earthly concerns.

    Valerie Tryon is a British-born classical pianist, one of the youngest students ever to be admitted to the Royal Academy of Music and later receiving its highest award in piano playing.
    Since 1971 she has resided in Canada but continues to pursue an international performing and recording career. Among her specialisms is the music of Franz Liszt, of which she has made a number of celebrated recordings.
    Currently 'Artist-in-Residence' at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Valerie Tryon is active as a concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, accompanist and adjudicator.
    She was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 2017 “For her internationally celebrated career as a pianist and for her contributions as an educator and builder of classical music culture”.

    We are deeply grateful to Valerie for giving this inaugural solo recital on St Mary’s piano - a 6ft 3in grand in a bright ebonised case by the German maker Schimmel, who have been making fine pianos near Hanover since 1885. It was purchased by St Mary’s at auction, virtually brand new, with funds generously provided for the purpose in a legacy.

    THESE SHINING LIVES by Melanie Marnich

    Directed by Phil Greenleaves

    THESE SHINING LIVES chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and it’s continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits- or endanger the lives of those who come after them. The play is illuminated with comedy and romance. It is based on events that took place in the Chicago area between 1922 and 1938.

    The Lost Dress of Elizabeth I

    The Bacton Altar Cloth at Hampton Court Palace

    The only surviving example of Elizabeth I's dresses

    Following new research and conservation, Historic Royal Palaces Curators believe that the Bacton Altar Cloth once formed part of a dress worn by Elizabeth herself.

    The high-status silver chamblet silk, professional embroidery including gold and silver thread, and distinct evidence of pattern cutting all suggest that the item was once an item of elite court dress. Tudor law meant that only the very highest levels of nobility and royalty were allowed to wear dress that contained gold and silver.

    New research supports the theory that this was intended for the highest level of customer and that it is an item of dress from Elizabeth's own wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth I's clothing.

    Moving the Channel Tunnel Terminus to St Pancras became the catalyst for major change in this region of North London.  Over two decades some 67 acres of under-used railway lands behind St Pancras station and its sister terminus at King's Cross have been transformed into a complete mixed-use commercial, residential, educational and cultural-neighbourhood.  Our guide Martin Olutniks will guide us through this canal-side setting which is peppered with historic structures.
