Diana Coulter IHBC, Zen and the Stained Glass Art of Keith New
Keith New was a well-respected member of the BSMGP for more than half a century, and an important innovator in post-war stained glass design. His output, however, was modest, the product of a mere 20 years work. Diana Coulter’s talk will highlight New’s talents and achievements, in commissions in England and further afield, and in working with glass in revolutionary as well as more affordable ways. For further information, and to book online, please see the Society’s website or telephone 0790 907 0739.
