The Trustees were saddened to hear of the death of Dick Reid, a longstanding Patron of the Fellowship who died on the 16th January 2021, following a short illness. An internationally-renowned sculptor and stone carver, he was always generous with his time, employing and training numerous craftsmen and women who subsequently went on to have successful careers around the world.
He was a Governor of Lincoln Art College, when they set up a Historic Decorative Craft course. He encouraged Zibby Garnett to undertake the role of administrator to the course, where she quickly assisted in raising the standards of the programme. Following her untimely death, he had no hesitation in becoming a Patron of the Fellowship, to honour her contribution to the Historic Decorative Craft course at Lincoln.
