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.

This will be the last post on this blog. The three new tapestries for the three campuses of RMIT are now finished and the cutting off ceremony was held last Tuesday. Also I am no longer a student there - have gone on to bigger (and hopefully better) things at Uni NSW. The following are a few pics from the ceremony. The first pic shows the three tapestries side by side on the loom. The second is the designer, Cresside Collette with the course coordinator, Pat Jones. Then, most of the weavers who worked on the tapestry, The Vice-Chancellor of RMIT, Professor Margaret Gardner starting the cutting off and a small helper.
Each of the tapestries will hang at its respective campus although they were also designed so that they could hang together as a 'suite'. Hope you've enjoyed watching the tapestries grow.
