"New Directions in Tapestry" with Rebecca Smith
As an innovative tapestry weaver, Rebecca keeps an eye on other innovators in tapestry, both in the U.S. and in other countries. In this image-rich presentation she will show examples from weavers around the world whose work has been featured in major exhibitions, in order to draw some conclusions about the direction of modern tapestry.
