Sound and Weave

Contemporary Woven Art Inspired by Sound

At this time of renewed interest in woven tapestry the British Tapestry Group (BTG) exhibition focuses on the concept of sound and weave. The Sound and Weave Exhibition explores and expands the boundaries and language of traditional tapestry weaving, therefore creating the opportunity for the artists to move their work on from traditional methods towards new ways of making and expressing their ideas. Taking one of tapestry’s key strengths as a visual medium - the interplay between colour, light and texture - the artists bring in non-visual elements to create new works to stimulate and delight multiple senses.
