An exhibition of woven tapestries

The British Tapestry Group South East and London Regions present an exhibition of new woven tapestry works at the Haslemere museum from May 17th to 29th May 2021 Open Monday to Saturday.

The works in Window on Weaving will illustrate how contemporary tapestry has developed new ways of weaving but is still underpinned by traditional techniques. Unlike in earlier ages, all the tapestries will have been designed and woven by the artists. The range of subjects, from figurative to abstract, allied with the very individualist approaches to design and woven tapestry methods will make this an exciting and absorbing visit.

The exhibition will feature over 50 works from more than 30 artists, some of whom have had their work exhibited nationally and internationally. Most works are for sale, as well as a special display of small framed tapestries for sale at under £50.

There will be weaving demonstrations as well as yarns and weaving equipment for sale in a pop up shop on 21st & 22nd May.

“Tapestry: A Twentieth Century Renaissance”, a talk by Margaret Jones, weaver, curator and tutor who exhibits internationally and has won prizes for her work, takes place on Friday 21st May. See Haslemere museum website for details.

The artist weavers are all members of the British Tapestry Group South East and London Regions.

The British Tapestry Group exists to promote woven tapestry as a contemporary art form by raising public awareness through professional exhibitions, their journal, networking, regional initiatives, training and development.
