Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution

The Geffrye Museum hosts an upholstery 'takeover'

2 May 2017 – 21 May 2017 | Visit website | Book tickets

Second Sitters, a team of practising upholsterers promoting the craft throughout the UK, are collaborating with the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton on an exhibition tackling its future, celebrating its past and challenging the preconceptions surrounding the medium.

The exhibition features work from a selection of UK-based upholsterers who are redefining the practice. Related events include a panel discussion with leading industry figures as well as workshops and live demonstrations throughout May.

Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution takes place at the Geffrye Museum, Hoxton, from May 2-21. Exhibition entry is free - talks and workshops are ticketed at various prices.
