Nature Table - an exhibition in London August 27 2018

St Jude's return to the Town House in Spitalfields for Nature Table, an exhibition of recent work plus new fabric and wallpaper designs by Angie Lewin and Emily Sutton, our latest St Jude's In The City event.

Nature Table will explore the work of these two prolific artists and designers who create work across a variety of mediums, sharing an interest in the natural world. Both Angie and Emily spend much of their time on location, recording the flora and landscapes that inspire them, often collecting reference material which will be assembled back in the studio.

The exhibition will feature a selection of limited edition prints by both artists alongside unique collages by Angie and watercolours by Emily.

As part of London Design Festival and Shoreditch Design Triangle, the event will also see the launch of new fabrics and wallpapers by both artists, adding the growing range of artist-designed fabrics that St Jude's have been producing since 2005.

In addition, visitors will be able to explore the St Jude's Studio Archive range, featuring reissued wallpaper designs by Edward Bawden and Sheila Robinson.

If you'd like to receive details of the original works that Angie and Emily will be exhibiting, please subscribe to our gallery newsletter.

Open: Monday to Saturday from 11am – 6pm and Sunday 11.30am – 5.30pm

Albion – A Celebration of Britain in Print September 05 2016

We’re delighted to be returning to The Town House on Fournier Street in the heart of Spitalfields for an event co-curated with The Town House proprietor Fiona Atkins.

The building dates from 1720 where silk weavers originally worked and plied their trade.

In addition to a showcase of our artist-designed fabrics and wallpapers we’ll be presenting an exhibition entitled ‘Albion - A Celebration of Britain In Print’ featuring limited edition prints by St Jude’s co-founder Angie Lewin and printmaker Christopher Brown.

Christopher Brown was born in London in 1953. He attended the Royal College of Art where he was introduced to, and eventually assisted, Edward Bawden, the master of the linocut. It was Bawden who encouraged him to explore this medium.

Since then, Christopher has exhibited at the Michael Parkin Gallery, The Royal Academy, The Fry Gallery, The Fine Art Society and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

We’ll also be launching Christopher Brown’s ‘Albion’ wallpaper, his first for St Jude’s, along with Mark Hearld’s Squirrel and Sunflower fabric and Sheila Robinson’s Monkeys and Birds wallpaper.

Monkeys and Birds’ was designed in 1958 by printmaker Sheila Robinson (1925-1988) and was printed by hand to decorate the walls of Cage Cottage, the family home in Great Bardfield. The design originates from Sheila’s hand cut linocut blocks.

A chapter profiling Sheila's work features in 'Bawden, Ravilious and the Artists of Great Bardfield' published by the V&A.

As well as the original colour way, we've worked closely with Sheila’s daughter, the printmaker and painter Chloë Cheese, to create two additional colour ways.

Visit us at The Town House, 5 Fournier Street, London E1 6QE from Tuesday 20th until Sunday 25th September. Open Tuesday 11am-8pm, Wednesday-Friday 11am-6pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am-5pm.

The Making of Nature Table September 03 2014

We’ve just uploaded a new film that looks at the inspiration behind Angie’s Nature Table fabric and wallpaper.

We had worked with the photographer Cristian Barnett before and he offered he making of a short film in return for a donation to the Movember fundraising programme (supporting the work of this global men’s health charity). 

We were delighted to take him up on the offer - and here is the result (with special thanks to Ultramarine for the use of 'Within Reach' from their recent This Time Last Year album)
