Textile Works and Anne Harte are delighted to invite Artist Linda Green an internationally known tapestry weaver to lead the Workshop. Over the two day course she will share her knowledge in what promises to be a most exciting and inspirational Workshop. Tapestry weaving is an ancient artform and for cultures as diverse as the Egyptian Copts and the pre‐Columbians of Peru, tapestry was an important means of artistic and cultural expression. In this century artists still continue to find endless creative possibilities in this medium.
Linda Green studied tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art and Royal College of Art, London.
She was a Lecturer at Glasgow School of Art and now runs Studio Green, a creative space for creating, making and learning in Edinburgh. Find out more about Linda by visiting her website at www.studiogreen.me
