Greenwich Mural Workshop Talk

The London Mural Preservation Society have organised a talk by Steve Lobb, one of the founder members of Greenwich Mural Workshop, about their work over the last 30 plus years. Ruth Miller from LMPS says:

'Greenwich Mural Workshop begun life in the 1970s and have produced murals, in paint and mosaic form, and provided advice about other public art. For the local people of South East London, their work has been part of the surrounding landscape for the last few decades. A couple of pieces from their early years survive in Charlton - the Rathmore benches and the Floyd Road Mural.  We are really looking forward to hear Steve talk about his experiences!'.

Greenwich Mural Workshop were also responsible for the Surrey Quays shopping centre murals, and the Woolwich Tramshed mural (panel below) that was damaged by smoke during last summer's riots.

The event is on Wednesday 25th July 2012, 6:30 - 8pm, The Dogstar (1st floor Upstairs), 389 Coldharbour Lane,  London, SW9 8LQ

This talk is a part of the If Walls Could Speak project which has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and has involved the restoration of the Brixton Windmill Mural.
