  • Fascinating to see the Tapestry weavers at work, impressed by the commissions they receive. Loved the exhibit in the gallery!
  • Always well-curated exhibitions - but the real attraction is the gallery above the weaving hall.
  • Beautiful art studio and café. An urban oasis. Not to be missed!
  • Very interesting watching the artists work its quite mesmerising. Very peaceful and relaxing. It would be nice if there was a questions and answer session. I'm not into weaving and i found this interesting
  • Places like this should be supported in any possible way. You can see the weavers in action from a viewing balcony
