The Cardozo Kindersley Workshop is home to architectural lettering, inscriptions, standing stones and other sculptural work. Chris Kington FRSA followed up a previous RSA Fellowship guided walk of Kindersley's work and inscriptions with a thank you letter in the form of a poem. In consequence, he became the Workshop’s Poet-in-Residence.
Now, six years on, 52 of the poems he composed in this role have been compiled into Red Letters All along with photographs by Sir Charles Chadwyck-Healey. They brilliantly convey the atmosphere of the Workshop – its history, people, workings, lettering, stones and other materials, tools, archives and skills.
A long-awaited return visit to the Workshop will combine an introduction to and a tour led by David Kindersley’s widow Lida Cardozo Kindersley and readings by Chris Kington. Very much a living craft Workshop, the building is an intriguing converted Victorian Schoolhouse and tells its own history too.
Through support from the RSA East of England, we are able to offer this unique experience free of charge. Spaces are limited so please make sure to sign up via this page in order to secure a place.
