Celebrate the opening of the V&A’s Dr. Susan Weber Gallery of Furniture, that focuses on the methods of making and decorating furniture from the 15th-century to the present day.

Join curators, scholars and designers as they explore materials from shagreen to plywood, and reveal the unique history of techniques from Marquetry to lacquer. Speakers include Adam Bowett, Carolyn Sargentson, Christine Guth, Christopher Wilk, Joris Laarman, Julia Lohmann and Gareth Neal
