The course will paint a vivid picture of the ‘flower of Cities all’ by focusing on early maps, portraiture, architecture, decorative arts and the larger urban landscape. The first afternoon of this two day course will feature a specialist workshop delivered by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

The course costs £262, £195 concessions. Please note the full fee applies to V&A Members, patrons, students and senior citizens.
