Christie’s Lates: Masters and Makers
On the first Tuesday of every month, Christie’s South Kensington keeps its doors open late for an evening of talks and demonstrations. Anyone can drop in to Christie’s 85 Old Brompton Road between 6.00 and 8.30 pm for a post-work drink, to hear experts talk about art, interior design and collecting, and to see what happens behind the scenes. Christie’s Lates have a different theme every month, which explore the world of antiques, contemporary art, and everything in-between. Visit the Christies website for updates and details of future events.
On the 1 November 2016 we took part in the Masters and Makers event, demonstrating weaving to the public. Weftfaced were thrilled to be able to show the Gillian Ayres tapestry, Tirra Lirra, courtesy of the Campaign for Wool and the Alan Cristea Gallery. We were also able to display our tapestries in a salon hang mixing both Katharine's and Caron's work up for the first time. The event was a great success and we met many new interested parties, and passed on our knowledge and expertise.
