All of Mark Wallinger’s vitreous enamel Labyrinths have been meticulously handmade in a small factory in Surrey. The idea of the preparatory dimension of design, drawings and prototypes that are turned into finished products is one that greatly intrigues Wallinger.
This study day affords a rare opportunity to visit the V&A’s new Clothworkers’ Centre for Textiles, Fashion Study and Conservation to look at some of the earliest samples of London Underground fabrics, designs and techniques. Close-up archival study will be accompanied by talks from expert curators.
