Tree of Life - Diary of a Tapestry

The Tree of Life is a 3metre x 5.5metre tapestry designed by tapestry weaver Cresside Collette for the RMIT Spiritual Centre. It incorporates leaf elements from staff and students of RMIT and is being woven by a team consisting of three professional weavers and a number of volunteers. This blog records the progress of the weaving.

The top two photos were taken on the 22nd October and you can see that the little figures alog the bottom have taken shape. On the close-up you can just see how the lines are marked out on the warps before weaving.

This was a lovely morning tea we had on the 30th to welcome Cresside back from her trip the America (that's her in the red and white stripes)

Poor old Julie - in the foreground also in red and white- is temporarily in a wheelchair after falling off a roof and breaking both ankles. However she is now getting around and can still weave from the chair.
The last picture shows where we are at today
