The cutting off of Imants Tillers’s “Avenue of Honour”

It was a privilege to be present this morning at the formal cutting off of the huge tapestry “Avenue of Honour”, designed by Imants Tillers for the Canberra War Museum, and woven by the weavers of the Australian Tapestry Workshop. Weaving commenced last October, and had to be completed for installation for this Anzac Day, April 25th.
