Gobelin Tapestry Atelier: Paris

A visit to the Gobelin Tapestry Atelier in Paris was one of the highlights of our Paris visit. This weaving workshop has created tapestries, many of enormous scale for hundreds of years. We were led through the weaving rooms and allowed to watch artists work on pieces that would take multiple pieces four to five years to complete.

Here is an example of an historic tapestry.

And now, a modern one.
