Italy 1515-16. © 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 
full-size designs for them ‐ the famous Raphael Cartoons. ‘This is the first time that the designs and tapestries have been displayed together ‐
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.
