TEXTILE ART: Recto-Verso, Matt Arbuckle
Available from Wednesday 4 November 

In this programme, we will take a journey around Matt Arbuckle’s exhibition, Recto-Verso. In Recto-Verso, 50 metres of painted fabric is upstretched and draped around the Holt gallery, creating a completely new visual landscape. Students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this exhibition, as we will explore key themes/ideas while walking through, in and around the installation.

We will then head to the gallery classroom, and create our very own pieces of fabric artwork!
