Watch this Space for a ʻMagic Carpet’

July onwards

Inspired by our contemporary Rug exhibition Under Your Feet, we will be working with local primary schools, this spring, to create a large Magical Flower Carpet and secret garden installation. In the workshops, working with artists Ben Davis, Jude Wood, Ticky Lowe and Emma Jayne Holmes, the pupils will create school ‘plots’ full of plants, fl owers, insects and a few weeds; create their own pieces to take away along with packets of seeds to plant their own real garden plots. Each of the textile school plots will then be joined to create one large and whimsical Magic Flower Carpet within the studio space which will grow and bloom for visitors to see throughout this summer.
