‘The Magical World of Marbling’, Knots Rugs

Knots Rugs

Nat Mak celebrates the launch of her book, Marbling- Learn in a Weekend, and her collaboration with Knots Rugs with a demonstration of her techniques at the Knots Rugs showroom on 14 May. Knots Rugs will also be showcasing its collection of seven wool and silk hand-knotted rugs, translations of the original artwork created from paper marbling.


A Textile Assembly

The Craft Show brings together a display of fabric art, along with lively workshops and discussions right in the center of the gallery. Featuring both well-known and up-and-coming fabric artists and creators, the exhibition delves into the idea of making stories and structures through fabric. The exhibit covers a wide range of fabric techniques, from printing and knitting to weaving and stitching. It highlights the creations of twenty skilled fabric artists and creators who focus on telling stories with their work, using craft objects, floral arrangements, and creative exhibit setups to explore what’s happening in the world of fabric art.


(Un)common Threads, Design East

DESIGNEAST introduces the third installment of (Un)common Threads, an exhibition showcasing textile artworks by artists and designers hailing from the Global South. This exhibition investigates how textiles have a special ability to convey subtle aspects of identity, culture, and surroundings. Using diverse materials like unconventional fibres, organic elements, and traditional weaving techniques, each artwork narrates the artist’s perspective and explores the myriad ways in which life, community, and values intertwine into a single moment.


Photorealism at Tai Ping

Tai Ping

Taking inspiration from the stunning Carrara marble and the masterful craftsmanship seen in the renowned Queen Victoria memorial statue, Tai Ping has designed a wall hanging showcasing an abstract interpretation of the intricate folds and carvings found in these elements.


Patagonia Rug Showcase, Riviere

Showcased at the Riviere show room is ‘Patagonia’, a joint rug collection with O&A London, inspired by the distinctive and wild beauty of the Patagonian scenery.
