Dovecot Studios & ATW Weaver Exchange
We are please to announce an international exchange programme between Dovecot Studios and the Australian Tapestry Workshop.
This exchange is designed to raise the profile of contemporary tapestry weaving by fostering talent, building relationships and sharing knowledge. By spending an extended period in the host country, weavers will engage with both familiar and new working practices, and immerse themselves in the local Arts and cultural community.
