tapestryphile

I went to the Victorian Tapestry Workshop today and just had to tell you about it straight away. It was so inspiring!





We also saw colour samples and the painting being used for the Dame Elizabeth Murdoch birthday tapestry but I was so excited I forgot to take a photo! What an amazing birthday present - really taking the handmade pledge to another level!

Most of their tapestries take around 6 months to produce with a team of weavers. We were just taking a look around but I am studying tapestry at TAFE this semester and am halfway through my first sampler. I am thoroughly enjoying it!

PS. Thanks for the "make my day" award - it made my day! I am still stewing on my response though...
