After Bloomsbury

Rugs from the Omega Workshops, 1913-1916

2 May – 24 June 2012 (This exhibition has passed)

In an inspired collaboration between Christopher Farr and The Courtauld Gallery, five handcrafted rugs based on original designs by the Omega Workshops were unveiled at Somerset House. Visitors to the Great Arch Hall encountered contemporary rugs displayed alongside reproductions of their original designs of nearly 100 years ago. The short-lived Omega Workshops marked one of the most creative moments in the history of modernist craft and design in Britain.
