The Colour Pavilion
Stitch-School are thrilled to be setting up the Colour Cloth under the Colour Palace during the summer at Dulwich Picture Gallery. This summer, the Dulwich Pavilion returns with The Colour Palace, created by Pricegore architects and designer Yinka Ilori.
Free and open to the public throughout the summer months, The Colour Palace is a fusion of West African and European influences, inspired by the buzz of fabric markets in Lagos, Nigeria, and incorporating symmetry, curves and right-angles – all elements present in Sir John Soane’s iconic 1811 design of the Gallery. On each side of the Pavilion, brightly coloured timber slats create layers that shift when viewed from different angles, bringing the Gallery’s grounds into technicolour life.
We met Yinka in April and inspired by his colorful pattern design we designed the Colour Cloth which will be an interactive colour cloth to stitch.
Come and stitch with us!
