Artists Meet Their Makers is a celebration of the skill and imagination of West Dean Tapestry Studio’s Master Weavers. The studio was set up by West Dean Founder Edward James, and has worked with many leading modern and contemporary artists including Henry Moore, John Piper, Basil Beattie, Michael Brennand-Wood and Tracey Emin. A number of new commissions are currently in development and will be unveiled at the exhibition, including Philip Sanderson’s design based on ink drawings by Rebecca Salter, which he will be weaving in the gallery on selected days. A new film by R&A Collaborations shows Katharine Swailes in conversation with Emma Biggs & Matthew Collings, with whom she is developing an interpretation of a painting. Rebecca’s commission for the Macmillan Cancer Hospital, Chesterfirled, Weaving the Light (2017) is also on display.
