Ever wondered what cloth made from spider silk would look like? Wonder no more – go to the V&A before June the 5th (last-minute dash!) and see for yourself. There’s a display of the world’s largest pieces of spider silk cloth, made by Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley from the silk of golden orb-weaver spiders, which they collected in the highlands of Madagascar. Also included in the display is a film explaining how the cloth was made. More images from dezeen here. Thanks again to Elsbeth Court for the heads-up.
Show continues until 5th June.
Opening hours: daily, 10 – 17.45, open late til 10pm on Fridays
