Design Museum Academy Adult Learning
Workshop: Surrealist Weaving
In this one-day workshop, learn basic techniques of tapestry weaving to embellish the surface of your work.
You'll be working on your own surrealist eye design inspired by a tapestry developed by West Dean College which is based on Edward James's drawing 'The Empress of the Insects getting ready for the Midsummer Night's Ball'.
Light refreshments, equipment and materials will be provided.
