Australian Tapestry Workshop

The Australian Tapestry Workshop (ATW) enjoys an international reputation as a leader in the creation of contemporary tapestry.

Established in 1976, the ATW is the only workshop of its kind in Australia and one of only a handful in the world for the production of hand-woven contemporary tapestries. Located in one of the finest commercial buildings of the 1880s, a distinctive example of Victorian Free Gothic architecture, the former Harcourt and Parry emporium is of great cultural significance to the South Melbourne locality and the wider metropolis of Melbourne.

The ATW has created more than 500 tapestries ranging from palm-size to monumental hand-woven using the finest Australian wool, which is dyed on-site forming a unique palette of 370 colours. The ATW's highly skilled weavers work with Australian and international artists to produce tapestries that are known for their vibrancy, technical accomplishment and inventive interpretation.

Many notable Australian and international artists have collaborated with the ATW over the years including Arthur Boyd, Jon Cattapan, John Olsen, Jorn Utzon, David Noonan, Sally Smart, Keith Tyson, Brent Harris, Imants Tillers, Brook Andrew and Sheena Wilfred.

ATW tapestries hang in significant public and private collections around the world and leading institutions in Australia, including the Great Hall of Parliament House in Canberra, Australian War Memorial, Sydney Opera House, National Portrait Gallery, National Library of Australia, The Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne Recital Centre, State Library of Victoria, National Gallery of Victoria, Royal Children's Hospital and the Royal Women's Hospital Melbourne, Parliament House Perth, and nine Australian embassies worldwide.

The ATW also has an exciting program of exhibitions, public lectures, workshops and programs including weaving classes, guided tours, artists-in-residence, children's weaving programs, community open days and special events.

Below Five Zero Film Festival

Below Five Zero will showcase works created by local filmmakers for change they found in their pocket. All films shown will have been made for less than $50,000.

The festival organisers believe Australia has an immense amount of talent hiding behind low-budget shorts and features. They want to give these filmmakers the opportunity to have their work shown on the big screen and they also want to give the Australian public access to films they might not otherwise get to see.

Enjoy some quality cinema whilst supporting your local filmmakers.
