During their last days at Dovecot Studios, ATW weavers spent some more time at the rug tufting frame, working on their small tufting samples which they got to take home with them.

The girls also had the opportunity to take out and look at some historic tapestry samples from Dovecot’s archive.

On their last evening, Karlie, Leith and Sophie attended Artist Talk: Linder talks with Ian Massey and rug tufter Kristi Vana that took place at Dovecot Gallery as part of the Daughters of Penelope exhibition supporting programme.

We hope the weavers enjoyed their time at Dovecot Studios and hope to see them again in the future!

The creative exchange between Australian Tapestry Workshop and Dovecot Studios will continue with Dovecot’s Master Weaver David Cochrane’s visit to ATW in Melbourne in a few week’s time.
