Weaving Showcase: Ikon Youth Programme & Seungwon Jung

Join Ikon Youth Programme (IYP) on Slow Boat in Coventry for a showcase of weaving made in collaboration with artist Seungwon Jung.

During 2023 IYP has been collaborating with Jung and volunteers at The Weaver’s House to explore Coventry’s history of weaving, as one of the city’s main industries in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Through workshops on Slow Boat in Coventry Canal Basin, the medieval terrace The Weaver’s House in Spon End and at Ikon in Birmingham, they consider the intersection between photography and weaving.

This event precedes the Co-Creation Showcase: Ikon Youth Programme and Seungwon Jung, which takes place at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Friday 27 – Saturday 28 October 2023.

Free, no need to book, drop-in.

Please note: Slow Boat is fully accessible, with a lift available. For additional access enquiries please contact

This project is co-created with Ikon Youth Programme on Slow Boat, supported by Freelands Foundation.
