The Willow Pattern

February 19, 2015 by TDLP

The Willow Pattern is a famous blue and white pattern that was invented in England in the 18th Century, inspired by Chinese designs and used on ceramics like plates, cups, jugs and vases.  The story depicted in the design is dramatic and exciting.

TDLP originally collaborated with the Families team at the V&A to bring an interactive performance that tells you the Willow Pattern story through original music and song, treasure hunting and dragon dancing.  Families have a chance to solve clues to help the Mandarin. Maybe you can come and help us solve the mystery and watch the pattern come to life?

The Willow Pattern has been performed by single storytellers in gallery spaces, as an interactive show and developed into a classical concert with original music by our musical director, Lucy Shaw.

Age guidance: 2-12

Previously performed at V&A Museum, Stoke Museum, Stratford Circus

Everything TDLP creates is bespoke for your venue and needs.
