The Cordis Prize for Tapestry Opens Today
The Fourth Cordis Prize for Tapestry exhibition opens in Inverleith House today. The world’s largest award for tapestry brings together the very best and most ambitious contemporary examples of the discipline.
Founded by Miranda Harvey and Ian Rankin, who wanted to celebrate Edinburgh as a centre for tapestry weaving expertise, The Cordis Prize raises awareness of the global diversity of artists working in the medium, and entries range from as far as Australia, Canada and Russia.
Showcasing a shortlist of entries, including the winning tapestry, the exhibition - located inside the grand 18th century Inverleith House - is free and open to the public from 16th March to 27th May, 10:30-17:30 (last entry 17:15).
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone to experience world class tapestry and should not be missed
