Led by The Revd Dr Ayla Lepine, this tour of the William Blake exhibition makes connections between the Bible and Blake’s imagery. It will cover a range of Blake’s work to draw out key themes regarding modern life and the Church in Britain. Expect fresh insights into how Blake responded to notions of death, resurrection, desire and creation.
