Freud's Fabrics: Curator's Tour of the Freud Museum's Textiles

London Craft Week (9-13 May 2018) is an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers alongside celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands. As part of this year's London Craft Week, Freud Museum curator, Bryony Davies will be taking an exclusive tour of the significant textile pieces of the collection, including Freud's coat, Anna Freud's weaving loom, and the famous Freudian psychoanalytic couch and the q'ashqai rug that rests upon it. The evening will also include an introduction to the Freud Museum by director, Carol Seigel. The Freud Museum's participation offers an interesting and unique contribution to the London Craft Week agenda, delving into this one-of-a-kind collection, and the life and work of Sigmund Freud, founder of the psychoanalysis, and his daugher Anna Freud, a pioneer in child psychoanalysis - both former residents of 20 Maresfield Gardens. A glass of wine will be available for all attendees upon arrival.
