Lucienne Day ' Living Design'

I'm playing catch up with these posts so this one is from May 2018. I traveled down to the Cotswolds for my birthday and visited the Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester. The Lucienne Day 'Living Design' exhibition has been touring since January 2017 to celebrate the centenary of her birth.

It was a joy to see so many of her fabrics metres high, the exhibition is pretty limited but still worth a look if it's touring near you.

I'm familiar with most of her work but i wanted to visit to study the scale and details of the patterns. I'm currently working on a new collection and trying out repeats patterns that range from 4cm to 35cm. I hoped that seeing them full scale would help give me the push i need to be a little more free with my designs.
