Guest Speaker - Colin Wilbourn
From Sketchbook to Sculpture
Although born in Hertfordshire Colin has lived most of his life in Sunderland. His work is very diverse, using many different materials and techniques and ranges from monumental outdoor artworks to very discreet interior pieces. Locally he is best known for work on the Riverside in Sunderland ("The Red House" etc) and the Riverside and Cathedral in Durham ("The Upper Room", "Last Supper Table"); also at Herrington Country Park he has completed a miners memorial at Lambton Cokeworks and a suite of furnishings and a window for the chapel at Durham Cathedral.

The lectures commence at 2.30pm and are approximately one hour in duration. Please arrive in the Prospect Building between 2.00-2.30pm to register before the lecture begins. There is (pay) parking in the grounds of the campus. The St. Peter's Metro Station is within a few minutes walking distance. Alternatively the Stagecoach E1 (every 20 minutes from Park Lane Bus Station) will take you to Gladstone Terrace, which is only a few minutes from the the campus.

Brought to you by a partnership of the University of Sunderland, the Worker's Educational Association, the Wearside University of the Third Age, the Wearside Field Club, the Sunderland Heritage Forum and the Friends of Sunderland Museums.
