Annual Appeal

The Australian Tapestry Workshop is a small not-for-profit arts organisation. We are also an international leader in contemporary tapestry, collaborating with artists to produce exceptional handwoven works of great beauty and scale.

Donations play a vital role in the creation of tapestries, enabling a broad community to experience contemporary art. Your donation underpins the success of our mission to take accessible and inspiring art into the public sphere. Since 1976 the ATW has nurtured the relationship between artist and weaver.

Individual artists are rarely enabled to work at monumental scale. The ATW gives artists the opportunity to realise their work at the dimensions suited to public spaces, where the wider community can encounter the majesty of large-scale tapestry. It’s works like these, enriching our shared spaces, that serve to unite and inspire us.
