Material Witness

Material Witness, a collaboration between the Guild, the Courtauld Institute and the CHASE consortium of universities, enabled History of Art students and academics to acquire a physical understanding of the material culture they are studying, such as stone-carving and tapestry.

Guild members demonstrated spinning, bookbinding, lettering, and gilding, and shed light on the sensibilities behind each process.
