Workshop for schools and families


major exhibitions series - On the Silk Road

27 October 2012 - 10 March 2013


To tie in with the On the Silk Road exhibition, the Art Workshop will be organising a journey in the exhibition from East to West, on sea and land, in the footsteps of the caravans of people and goods that travelled the silk roads.  We will be exploring different cultures and the trade in objects, ideas and traditions at every staging post.  In the workshop, there is an installation of entangled yarn created by illustrator Vittoria Facchini, the author of Blow by Blow (published by Donzelli editore) - an artist's installation designed to link the thousand-year-old stories of merchants, pilgrims and ambassadors who breathed life into the most fascinating return journey in history.
