It may have rained a little but it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of some 20 people on the look out for ways in which John Ruskin‘s life and work had influenced the way in which people have lived and worked in Shoreditch.
Here are some of the comments made and images from the walk –
– Eclectic day full of inspiring ideas and surprising connections.
– As usual, it was the doing that was the most interesting. Looking and drawing at Unto this Last, drawing at Arnold Circus, but most especially building and sharing drawings at the Geffrye Museum. Again the ‘active gift’, the board, make the walk extra special. Enjoyable and effective. Well done!
– Another successful Ruskin Walk. Loved the East End location and the links with Ruskin’s ethos. Give us more!
We would like to thank the furniture shop and workshop premises of Unto This Last, in Brick Lane, run by local entrepreneur Olivier Geoffroy who not only contributed a warm venue for the start of the walk but also an intriguing sketch board for each participant. The walk ended at the fascinating Geffrye Museum, who kindly provided an art studio, in which participants came together to share their discoveries and assemble some 3D structures from the sketch boards.
Further Ruskin Walks will be announced shortly.
