A stunning bespoke tapestry from the work ‘Tirra Lirra’ by the British abstract artist Gillian Ayres - currently in the Royal Academy - will be woven by Weftfaced, the UK’s newest tapestry workshop. Inspirational themes, textures and wool usage from small mills, young designers and major names will be explored in this a highly styled capsule follow-on from the critically acclaimed Wool House that showcased at Somerset House in 2013.
Open to the public from the 5th to 12th October, the Interiors Wool Collection offers free admission and all items displayed will be on sale during Wool Week.
