The Making of a Tapestry


Enter the tapestry artist’s studio and follow the most important stages involved in the making of a tapestry, from the drawing table to the moment when the tapestry is hanging on the wall.


Creating a tapestry requires a thorough training in drawing and painting for the design work, complete mastery of weaving techniques and knowledge of the behavior of the yarn.


The tapestry showcased here is 6’6″ high and 13’10” wide. It took about nine and a half months to complete, including design time.


It was commissioned by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Washington, DC, and is called “The Bryant Tapestry,” being a memorial tapestry for Chief Justice William B. Bryant.
