Priorswood and District Men's Shed

The Priorswood and District Men's Shed enjoyed a great morning exploring and talking about works in the National Gallery collection. They went to a selected viewing of the widely acclaimed Hellelil and Hildebrand, the Meeting on the Turret Stairs by Frederic William Burto, as part of this term's Watercolour painting classes with CDETB Art tutor Roisin Mc Guigan. Usually, it is kept in a special cabinet behind closed doors which are opened for just one hour, four days a week, possibly adding to its intrigue.
