Sallie Tyszko Tapestry Studio and Gallery
"Sallie Tyszko weaves strong, powerful tapestries, full of colours and textures on big floor looms.
Sinnuous lines thread across landscapes. Luminous mohair undulates through the waves of seascapes. The colour of a sea at dawn, the veins of a leaf, a shade, and a shape inspire, and the legends give a mermaid, myths and mystery.
The weft is anything weaveable; stones, rocks of mica, mohair, silk, wool, hand-dyed, hand-spun.
The warp cotton, the transparent backgrounds 50lb breaking strain fishing line. Each driftwood frame meticulously constructed. Nothing is impossible..."
Sallie welcomes visitors to her tapestry workshop Driftwater Weaves.
The workshop is based in Tobson on the Isle of Great Bernera (Outer Hebrides).
Sallie's work is on display and available for purchase, and you will have an opportunity to see the wall hangings currently being woven on the looms.
The studio is open all year
Monday to Friday 11pm - 4pm
(It is best to phone in winter to make sure Sallie is there).
