Artist in residence, leading sculptor Eva Rothschild, is collaborating with our tutor and master weaver Phil Sanderson at the West Dean Tapestry Studio.

West Dean Tapestry Studio Symposium 2017 focused on the relationship between art and craft, as well as questioning the role of making and the maker in contemporary practice.
The Symposium expolored how collaborations between artists and makers can inform each other's practice, through a number of speakers, including artists currently working with the Tapestry Studio. It will explore how tapestry can tap into a the current interest in skill-based making in contemporary art.
