Help us restore working class heritage.
Sculptor Gilbert Bayes’ work was truly ‘art in everyday life’ – figures on posts for washing lines – making St Pancras Housing ‘fairytale estates’.
Tragically over 80 of these beautiful 1930s ceramics have disappeared – selling at auctions.
But now we have a chance to restore some.
And you can help – we’ve already raised funds to do so; so even a little will help us restore these artworks to the area they were intended for.
Please support us.
