WMG Late: All Blues

  • 4 June 2015
  • 18:30 - 22:30
  • Free; no need to book

WMG Lates, our after-hours events, are a chance to experience the Gallery in a relaxed adult atmosphere. Visit the special exhibitions and have a go at hands-on art and craft activities or sample some of the best art, music and performance in London.

This month, inspired by Lucille Junkere's work on indigo, we host an evening of live blues music with Errol Linton, Adam Blake and Lance Rose. Plus Lucille shows us how to dye using natural indigo and discusses the resist dyeing techniques used in the Nigerian art of Adire.
