Win Anni Albers exhibition tickets, a weaving tutorial and an overnight stay at a Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel.
Keen to know your weft from your warp?
This competition prize will immerse you in the woven world of the pioneering textiles artist Anni Albers at Tate Modern’s latest exhibition, followed by an opportunity to get hands on at a loom.
Anni Albers was one of the first pioneers of contemporary textiles design and whom many artists today pay a great homage to. Albers’ love affair with weaving began in the Twenties at Weimar’s Bauhaus art school after she’d been discouraged from taking up other classes believed to be more suited to men.
She bridged modern designs with ancient hand-craft in a new and novel way. She became known for bold repeating geometric patterns – which are still commonplace in design today. The exhibition showcases the very best of her life at the loom and it’s a rare opportunity to see large woven wall hangings, intricately fine weavings and cutting-edge techniques.
Feeling inspired, you can then enjoy a two-hour freestyle weaving workshop at The London Loom where you can choose from over 400 yarns to experiment with and create your very own unique woven keepsake.
Then relax with an overnight stay followed by breakfast at a central London Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel.
Oh no, you’re a little late!
