The Magic Power
of the Needle:
A Louise Bourgeois inspired Textile Workshop 

Friday 4 October 2024
Sold Out

Inspired by our exhibition Louise Bourgeois: Nature Study we’re hosting a textile workshop where you’ll learn how to make your own fabric web.

You’ll go on an exclusive tour of the exhibition where Curator Oli McCall will highlight Bourgeois’ textile artwork. Then, you’ll learn the fundamentals and apply the art of English paper piecing to create a web-style textile artwork plus how to display your work.

All the fabric in this workshop has been responsibly sourced from second hand shops, workshop leader Catherine-Marie’s own collection and Yodomo, a London based initiative that collects textile remnants from mills, designers and shops and sells them back to the public.

prices and information

£75 per person

Price includes the workshop, curator tour, light refreshments and materials.
