Art Deco in the V&A Tour

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 26th Oct 2016

Using the V&A's vast collection as our lavish backdrop for our museum exploration, we will not only trace the origins of Art Deco design but also have a look at the movement’s best expressions via the medium of ceramics, glass, sculpture, jewellery and fashion. Highlights of the tour include a large ceramic frieze depicting the history of pottery throughout the ages, stunning bijous crafted by the ‘Architect of the Jewel’ as well as a bronze relief and silver fire basket associated with a scandalous ménage à trois that set the tongues of society on fire.

Cost: £10
