Tapestry Weaving

It has been a long time since I posted any tapestry weaving on this blog.  I do very little weaving now but have been trying to at least do the 20 x 20cm AU/NZ Tapestry Challenges.  A theme is given each year and the completed tapestries are circulated for exhibition in New Zealand and Australia over several months.

I have just finished this first one I called "Fire" (for the theme 'Elements') and will mail it off tomorrow.  I know my skills have deteriorated over the years since I was studying the diploma at Warrnambool TAFE.  I have too many interests and not enough time. Retirement is too busy!

2017 Challenge

The theme for 2016 was "Flight" and this shows the Concorde from a photo I took in the Nairobi Game Park in 1974.

2016 Challenge

The theme for 2015 was "My Home"and this shows my back deck. Unfortunately this tapestry and two others were stolen from an exhibition space in Melbourne.

2015 Challenge

The 2014 theme was "Light and Shade"

The 2009 theme was "Is this me?" - not sure about the result!

The first challenge I did in 2008 was titled "Tapestry Blues"
