Â© Royal Collection / V&A I will be running a three-day practical workshop at the V&A to coincide with the current exhibition Raphael: Cartoons and Tapestries for the Sistine Chapel. Four of the ten tapestries designed by Raphael for the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City are displayed alongside the â¨full-size designs for them ‐ the famous Raphael Cartoons. ‘This is the first time that the designs and tapestries have been displayed together ‐â¨something Raphael himself never witnessed. The tapestries have not been shown before in the UK.’ The workshop will include a curator talk on Renaissance methods and materials and during the course we will be exploring and experimenting with these fascinating techniques.

Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
