    Everyone at the Australian Tapestry Workshop is very saddened by the recent death of Michael Perry. His beautifully crafted bobbins have been an integral part of every tapestry woven at the ATW for many years. He provided our weavers with one of their key tools of trade - the simple but exquisitely worked bobbin with its brass tip. It gives us solace that Micheal’s essence is embedded in our many tapestries around the world. We extend all our sympathy to Ethyl and the Perry family. Vale Michael.

    It is with great sadness that we farewell Dr Robert Bell AM. Robert was a towering figure in the craft and design sector in Australia and overseas, through his own work, his curatorial practice and his advocacy for the sector nationally and internationally over many years. His legacy is enormous particularly through his major exhibitions and publications. He was a wise and gentle mentor to many, and I was privileged to be one. Robert introduced me to the Victoria Tapestry Workshop in 1980, and now I have the honour of leading it. Robert will be deeply missed and we offer our condolences to his wife Dr Eugenie Keefer Bell and thank her for this obituary. VALE Robert. - Antonia Syme, Director, Australian Tapestry Workshop
