A Postcard to West Dean is a hand-woven tapestry made
at the West Dean Tapestry Studio in 1986. Now a main feature of the
College's Dining Hall, the piece was commissioned to commemorate
Edward James's death and acknowledge his support and ambition for
West Dean College.
The Solar Time Clock is attracting international media and
sector attention and is a unique, super complex mechanical clock
which can be set for longitude and latitude. No other mechanical
clock has ever been made with such a complication. George talks
about his path to becoming an independent clockmaker.
Critical Paths showcases the exciting creative talent of the
