So excited about our current project – an amazing opportunity to go behind the scenes at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight – the stunning Island retreat of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. We are calling the exhibition “Beyond the Red Rope” because we have been given access to the roped off areas not usually seen by the public and detailed insight into the house and life of the Royal Family from the curator. I have been spending a lot of time talking to the dedicated and knowledgeable staff and listening to their stories about the house, their work, and what they love about Osborne House.
Once again I am working with the Island based QuayCrafts group – sharing our ideas and inspiration. Watch this space for more information and pictures of my work.
Our first exhibition will show how we have approached the concept of responding to such a beautiful historic building, and examples of ways of adapting our working methods to tell our stories. Osborne House will be opening a room not normally seen by the public to exhibit this work from 16th May to 1st June 2015
There will be an exhibition of the final work, located throughout the house, from 7th September.
