west dean college

West Dean College reception area is designed to reflect the South Downs landscape through the materials and forms of its furniture. It contains a myriad of stories about the surreal life of its Founder, Edward James.

Printed textiles, designed by Sue Timney, form bodices stretched onto the ‘Collage Cabinet’ doors and ‘Turtle Wallpaper’ spills out from the ‘Tilly Losch’ spiral staircase showcasing the skills of students and staff at the College.

The West Dean Festival was a cross-generational celebration of music, performance, storytelling, designing, making and philosophy. Students, tutors and performers collaborated on a magical weekend of creativity  in the gardens and Manor House.
