Tapestry Making Workshop

Commissioning a Tapestry:
  • Ever since being founded, Atelier 61 has offered the service of commissioning tapestries. The process of weaving is done on vertical looms and the materials and techniques are characteristic of classical tapestry. All other details and information concerning commissioning a tapestry one can get in person at Atelier 61, or by telephone, e-mail, social networks...

The workshop of Atelier 61 is the core of our activity and existence. The making of tapestry entails expertise, meticulous and time consuming work. The exquisite work of craftswomen weavers- master specialists in artistic tapestry weaving, which have the status of co-authors since they weave after the cartoons of artists – artists’ templates, and in such manner interpret the artistic vision and idea, has resulted in 900 tapestries produced in our workshop. Weaving of tapestries is done on vertical looms that enable the production of large dimensions. During the creative work, weavers construe and interpret the ideas of artists, using their own unique manner of weaving and typical techniques and their combinations with delicate materials such as wool, cotton, and hemp, silk... In Atelier 61, a special relationship between the author and the maker, that is, between the artist and the weaver, who educate and complement each other in the process of getting to know the attributes of tapestry as a medium, is being nurtured.
