Cordis are embarking on an exciting new project as part of their mission to promote tapestry weaving, and it's cultural and historical significance to the City of Edinburgh. In December 2019/January 2020 we will be teaming up once again with our friends at The Cordis Trust to present a curated selection of artworks that explore wider applications of the woven form.
Straying from their usual adherence to the traditional principals of woven Gobelin tapestry, this project aims to explore the wider applications of the woven form. Cordis have selected six artists whose work is constructed in a similar way to tapestry, or whose techniques resonate with the principals of weaving, whether that be through the interlacing materials or of repetitive gesture.
