ATW FRIENDS LECTURE SERIES: Designer & Weaver - Justin Hill & Karlie Hawking
The Australian Tapestry Workshop is holding a lecture with special guest Singapore-based architect Justin Hill as part of the 2018 Tapestry Design Prize for Architects on Thursday 23 August.
Justin Hill is the winner of the second Tapestry Design Prize for Architects with his design22 Temenggong Road, Twilight. His design impressed the judging panel with the beautiful and intricate nature of the design concept, which is based on the architect’s personal experience of living in Singapore and the ‘luminous blue of the short tropical twilight’.
Based in Singapore since 1981, Justin Hill is a leading international architect and a Director of the Kerry Hill Architects practices. He is also renowned stage designer who has worked on more than 30 major productions and designed several theatre venues across Australia and Asia.
22 Temenggong Road, Twilight is the first full-sized tapestry project undertaken by ATW weaver interns Karlie Hawking, Leith Maguire and Sophie Morris. Following Justin's lecture, weaver Karlie Hawking will also speak of her experience working on this major project, and the process involved in translating this design into tapestry form.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join Justin and Karlie in conversation, and hear from both the designer and the weaver about their collaboration.
