• ONLINE Transforming Turner

Please note this is a repeat of our previous talk Transforming Turner on Friday 19th February. All ticket holders will receive a link to the recording of this event, so if you cannot make this specific event date & time you will still have an opportunity to watch this event in your own time.

Join us for a very special online event to celebrate a brand new tapestry that reimagines the work of JMW Turner.

Marking the end of a three-year Dovecot Apprenticeship, Elaine Wilson has been weaving an intricate and artistic interpretation of a watercolour by JMW Turner, one of Britain’s most celebrated artists.

This exclusive online event takes you behind the scenes of Dovecot’s tapestry studio to hear about the creation of this new tapestry and to see the work cut from the loom, a rare event that normally takes place behind closed doors.

Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
