Making Paradise

29th April, 2021

RSN Tutor, Jung Byun, and RSN Studio Embroiderer, Masako Newton, will have their work on display at a new exhibition at the Aga Khan Centre in London.  The exhibition ‘Making Paradise’ explores the concept of Eden through Art & Islamic Garden Design and takes place 29 April – 30 September.

Jung’s award- winning* embroidered Peacock mirror will be on display and is also the inspiration for a bespoke RSN Day Class.  The Silk Shading class takes place online on Saturday 26 June, 10am – 4pm (UK time) and is suitable for all levels.  During the class, students will be treated to a short presentation by the Curator of the new exhibition.

Making Paradise is a multi-sensory exhibition and aims to evoke a sense of delight and wonder around the concept of Paradise. The exhibition invites visitors to be inspired by the visual interpretations of Paradise made by artists from across the world.  Please note that the exhibition will be online initially, and then open to the public subject to government guidelines.  Please check the Aga Khan Centre’s website for updates.
