Join Philip Sanderson, Studio Leader of the West Dean Tapestry Studio, as he talks about the making of the Eileen Mayo tapestry Duckpond.
Philip was part of the team interpreting Mayo's 1949 design for the Duckpond tapestry. He will speak about the process of working with colleagues Margaret Jones and Emma Straw to dye and spool threads and then hand weave Eileen Mayo’s design on the loom for the first time, 73 years after Mayo's initial cartoon.
There will be a 15-minute Q&A with the audience at the end of Philip’s talk.
