Tapestries woven at the Victorian Tapestry Workshop are confident and dynamic contemporary works of art.
Collaboration with living artists engenders new and unexpected outcomes and results in lively interpretations of original works.
Tapestry's rich colours, strong images, tactile and malleable surfaces, range of scale from tiny to monumental, and hand-made expertise, make it an exciting artistic medium. It possesses a powerful physical presence and is able to impart permanence through its timeless qualities together with images relevant to the modern world.
Nearly 400 tapestries have been woven since the Workshop was established in 1976.
Each work from the Victorian Tapestry Workshop is an original piece of art, created through the dynamic interaction between the artist, the weaver and the collector or client.
Many notable Australian and international artists have collaborated with the Workshop's artist-weavers.
