'Tapestry: Changing Concepts' is a group exhibition featuring work by 19 contemporary artists associated with the former Tapestry Department at Edinburgh College of Art, either as graduates or lecturers. The course put a strong emphasis on drawing, and all students learned to weave, yet at the same time were encouraged to explore different media to express their ideas.

This exhibition reflects the unconventional approach of the department. On display are drawings, installations and sculptures alongside works made of textile - all presented under the banner of tapestry.

Artists include: Jo Barker, Archie Brennan (1931-2019), Gordon Brennan, Sara Brennan, Henny Burnett, Amanda Gizzi, Linda Green, Stephen Hunter, Fiona Hutchison, William Jefferies, Tessa Lynch, Fiona Mathison, Jo McDonald, Susan Mowatt, Ann Naustdal, Matteo Rosa, Cristina Sobrino, Joanne Soroka and Lesley Stothers.
