This exhibition showcases the results of Inspired by…, a national arts competition for adult learners originally launched by the V&A and entrusted to Morley Gallery for 2014. It exhibits over 110 new works of art and craft inspired by pieces from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s collections.

Adult learners have been creating and submitting works inspired by pieces in the collections of the V&A South Kensington and the V&A Museum of Childhood since last October. A total of 441 entries have been received from locations across the UK, including London, Penzance, Aberystwyth and Edinburgh.
These works have been judged by an esteemed panel of judges, including several V&A curators, with the best entries selected for the public exhibition this spring. The works on display reflects a variety of media, from textiles, fashion and jewellery through to sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and painting, and draw from an even broader range of artefacts for inspiration.
