A creative workshop for children and families. Inspired by the illustrated envelopes of Cyril Lomax and organised with Washington History Society to celebrate the life of the former Rector of Holy Trinity Church in Washington.
One of the most prominent North East army chaplains, Cyril’s letters and diaries were illustrated with intricate sketches showing humour, the mundane and the dreadfulness of war.
Suitable for ages 6+ and families
This workshop is part of a series of events hosted by Washington History Society to celebrate the life of Cyril Lomax, prolific artist and Washington’s longest serving rector, 75 years since death.
