Learn more about the world of Elizabethan painters and artisans with Blue Badge Guide and art historian Sarah Ciacci. Booking essential.
This two hour walking tour will explore the Elizabethan London in which artists and craftsmen worked and lived. It will include important institutions such as the Painter-Stainers Company, which created employment and protected artists’ interests and the areas where these men and their families lived and worked, either legally within the City Walls or outside of the control of the Painter-Stainers in areas such as Blackfriars. Learning about where these artists bought their materials and how they found their commissions, as well as how they spent their day, will shed some light on what is was like for artists to live and work in the Elizabethan City of London.
Sarah Ciacci is an Art Historian and Blue Badge Guide for London, specialising in the Museums and Galleries of London and art related walking tours. She is also a history of art lecturer for the University of Richmond and a freelance gallery educator.
