Kate Derum We are in a holding pattern (2001) woven tapestry
I was very saddened to learn that Victorian tapestry artist Kate Derum had passed away. Kate was a wonderful artist who used the traditions of weaving to create quite poignant tapestries about its antithesis in modern urban life. She was an inspiration to aspiring weavers as a lecturer at Monash and as a leader at the Victorian Tapestry Workshop. I remember very well her contributions to committees at Craft Victoria. She was always generous and wise. Kate Derum will be missed greatly.
