Stephen Bottomley organised a visit to my studio of the Edinburgh College of Art Jewellery and Silversmithing Department and we also rushed round the V&A jewellery gallery. With my partner in mischief Susan Cross, I led some of the students through the lovely oval pond in the John Madjeski Garden to see the blue grey carved stone in the centre, it was the perfect day for a paddle!
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.
