Join members and friends for an inspiring evening, with wine and light refreshments, exploring the history of tapestry weaving, and enjoying the beauty created by the various artisans.
The Australian Tapestry Workshop (ATW) is regarded as an international centre of excellence for innovative, contemporary, hand-woven tapestries, created in collaboration with leading artists, architects & designers.
Established in 1976, it is the only workshop of its kind in Australia and one of a few in the world dedicated to the production of hand-woven tapestries.
The ATW was founded on the principle of collaboration and interaction between artist, weaver and dyer, embracing the philosophy of shared creative endeavour. This collaborative approach has been skilfully developed by the ATW to the highest professional level, and is maintained as a constantly evolving creative process, which gives the ATW a distinct vitality and strength.
