We are please to announce an international exchange programme between Dovecot Studios and the Australian Tapestry Workshop. This exchange is designed to raise the profile of contemporary tapestry weaving by fostering talent, building relationships and sharing knowledge. By spending an extended period in the host country, weavers will engage with both familiar and new working practices, and immerse themselves in the local Arts and cultural community.
Four tapestries created at the ATW have been featured in the Amity Craft Exhibition 2013 at George Paton Gallery, at the University of Melbourne from the 19th to 22nd of November 2013. The exhbition was organised by the World Craft Council, Asia Pacific Region to promote craft within this region. Our tapestries were displayed along with arts and crafts from Australian and the Asia Pacific region including jewellery, ceramics, textiles and clothing.
Lily Fish, a theatre artist who was an ATW artist-in-residence in 2012, is back at the Workshop rehearsing a site-specific performance that will be part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Lily's work was influenced by the ATW weavers and the tapestries on the looms, including Juan Davila's 'Sorry' 2013 and Brent Harris's 'Rome' 2012.
