Save Event: Weaving New Worlds

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


15 international women artists use traditional tapestry techniques to weave the stories of our time.


Tapestries have always told stories. In this exhibition 15 women artists from the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Japan weave the stories of our time: the possibilities, the hopes and lost chances. Using the traditional hand woven tapestry techniques that connect us to the past, they have taken contemporary images and events, personal dreams and feelings. The tapestries range in subject matter, from intimate mother and child relationships and reflections of rural mythologies, to floods and urban decay. Always at the heart of the work is the human condition, the artists offering us both a utopian and dystopian view - the choice is ours.

Curated by Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts in collaboration with National Centre for Craft & Design and William Morris Gallery.
