The Australian Tapestry Workshop is opening its doors to the public, as part of Open House Melbourne 2018. It's a fine opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of the ATW, to explore both gallery spaces, studio floor and the mezzanine, with a view to the Colour Laboratory. Weavers and Artists-in-Residence will be on hand for a meet and greet, with current Artist-in-Residence, Rute Chaves, demonstrating her TRICOTAUTOMAT project. What is that?, you ask. The Trico-Automat is like a photobooth, except, instead of pictures, you get knitted portraits. How cool is that! Participants will be invited to get your photo taken and it'll be knitted live in real time.

For all of this and more, be sure to keep Saturday 28 July 2018 free, from 10am to 4pm at the ATW, 262-266 Park Street, South Melbourne. This is a free event hosted by the ATW. There'll be free guided tours of the building at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30am, and 2.30pm, so be sure to catch one for a complete experience. There'll also be all day drop-in kids weaving activities and a community look project. You'll also find the popular AIR Market filled with stalls that showcase handmade artwork, crafts, textiles, jewellery and ceramics by previous and current ATW Artists-In-Residence. These include Carolyn Cardinet (2018 AIR), Anna Dunnill (2016 AIR), Sai-Wai Foo (2018 AIR), Emma Greenwood (2017 AIR), Kyoko Imazu (2013 AIR), Vicki Mason (2014 AIR), and Cat-Rabbit
2015 AIR).

If you adore tapestry, this is not one to miss. For other ATW tapestry events, check their event pages. AIR Talks might interest you, as Artists-In-Residence talk about their artistic practices, and experience in the ATW. The Lecture Series has Singapore-based architect Justin Hill as a special guest talking about his collaboration between weaver and designer on the Twilight full-sized tapestry project. Weaver Karlie Hawking will also talk about her experiences working on such a major project and how they went about translating a design into tapestry form.
