Free. An event for Friends, Patrons and Company Members. Booking essential.
We’re delighted to invite Friends to our partner gallery for a very special tour of Tibor Reich with Sam Reich, Managing Director of Tibor Ltd.
Designer and artist Tibor Reich (1916-1996) set up his company in 1946 in Stratford-Upon-Avon creating a world famous micro-textile industry in the heart of Warwickshire. Constantly redefining the boundaries between art and industry, Tibor worked as an artist, designer and scientist, producing revolutionary textile designs for projects such as Concorde, The Royal Shakespeare Company, the Festival of Britain and the QE2.
Please note, this tour takes place at the Whitworth art gallery.
Free, but booking is essential.
