Three Melbourne cultural organisations – Australian Print Workshop, Australian Tapestry Workshop and Craft – collaborate for the first time to present Print Weave Make, a series of three open days in November 2012, showcasing the best in printmaking, tapestry, craft and design.
Over three consecutive Saturdays (10, 17, 24 November 2012) visitors can do more than simply tour exhibitions, they can participate in workshop programs by printmakers, weavers and craftspeople, in Fitzroy, Flinders Lane and South Melbourne where each of the organizations has its base.
