A Passion for Tapestry is an exhibition at the Australian Tapestry Workshop of small tapestries from the collection of Tuppy Cole, long-term friend and supporter of the ATW. Throughout her long association with ATW, Tuppy has collected many wonderful tapestries.
The exhibition features 18 small tapestries, woven since 2004, by weavers at the ATW. The collection includes tapestries that interpret designs by significant Australian artists, as well as tapestries based on the weaver’s own designs. Many of the works are experimental and demonstrate the open possibilities of the tapestry form.
Together, the exhibition presents a diverse snapshot of contemporary tapestry, and the imaginative styles of ATW weavers past and present
