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.

Can you believe it? Its March already-and no posts since November! We all had a break over Christmas and the New Year but the weavers have been back in action since the middle of January and are powering along! The 2 pics here of Sue and Julie were taken a couple of weeks ago but I just haven't had the time to get them up. I've been enrolling in a master's degree course with University of New South Wales and because its all on line and my computer skills are only average- its been a bit of an effort. The three new tapestries are now about halfway finished and looking very good.

Another bit of news is that an article I wrote on the Tree of Life tapestry has been published in Textile Fibre Forum. - Issue 1, No. 89, 2008, pp 28 and 29. (If you get to look at it you will finally get to know my real name too)

Since I wont be studying at RMIT any more this year, the posts here might become even more sporadic than they have been for the last couple of months but I will be looking in on them every now and again just to see how things are going .
