About this event

Join Deborah Hedgecock, the Curator of Bruce Castle Museum, as she explores the beautiful portraits by the artist Beatrice Offor (1864-1920) who lived in Tottenham.

Celebrated as amongst the first women students at The Slade School of Art, Beatrice was an unusually forward-thinking artist. She became, against the odds, one of the most popular artists of her day. One hundred years on, following her untimely death, her work has largely been forgotten – like so many women artists of her time. But the recent growing revival of admiration for Beatrice’s art, now seeks to acknowledge her achievements and make her work more widely known.

There will also be a follow-up art workshop taking place immediately after the talk, taking inspiration from Beatrice's portraits. No experience needed - just use whatever materials you have at home!

If you would like to sign up for this event, and/or the art workshop, please specify when getting in touch using the contact details below.
