In Honor of Archie Brennan
Master Weaver, Teacher and
This tapestry postcard banner honoring our teachers and influencers is an homage to Archie Brennan who wove and mailed his first tapestry piece in 1974. Archie, always the contrarian, decided to weave a simple postcard, something that would normally take a few minutes to fill out, actually took hours of planning and execution. Is this a comment on the preciousness of tapestry weaving or a chronicle of modern life, much as the medieval tapestries were a chronicle of their times?
Many of us were fortunate to have Archie as one of our teachers. Some of the work you see in the show is a result of that instruction.
