Following the success of her workshop and skull art installation at Tate Modern (Jul 12), Baker was invited by Tate Britain to host a large-scale workshop and installation. For Tate Britain, Baker’s reinterpretation of the famous painting: Milias’ 1985 ‘Ophelia’, involved her making a 6-ft infinity-mirror coffin and an embellished ‘Ophelia’ skeleton. Baker filled a large room at Tate Britain with foliage and invited participants to enter a forest scene and use stones, twigs and bones to create embellished artworks (Sep 13).

Artist Lauren Baker invites you to take part in an interactive workshop that deconstructs John Everett Millais’ Ophelia. Enter the forest and embellish her last moments to create your own unique charms and talismans to take away using a range of materials from crystals and trinkets to twigs and bones.
