SCALING UP – The Challenges and Opportunities in Making your Artwork BIG!

24 March 2022

Deadline: April 5, 2022

As part of @design_nationuk‘s talks programme, Rachel Fitzpatrick will be giving a talk on ‘SCALING UP – The Challenges and Opportunities in Making your Artwork BIG!’

This talk is designed to compliment the ‘Our Journey’ exhibition currently situated in @hubsleaford.

Jan Bowen of @jbowmanwovendesigns will also be present speaking about her large woven installations. Both makers will discuss their work and development of their prospective careers, both having considerable experience in increasing the scale of their work.

An example of the scale of works Rachel is referencing includes her commission for the European car manufacturer Peugeot in the Berlin showroom. Rachel designed a three metre wide chandelier and four meter wide curtain using five kilometers of velcro.

Taking place on Tuesday 5th April from 10.30am – 12pm, make sure to register your place online.
