Following an education in fine arts, in 1978, Tamar apprenticed in the Aubusson technique at the Jerusalem Tapestry Workshop directed by George Goldstein, working on fine mural-size tapestries designed by prominent artists, Jean Lurçat among them. In the 1980s and 90s, in addition to weaving her own designs, Tamar collaborated with her mother, producing several tapestries with symbolic images and Hebrew text depicted in Y. Shadur’s papercuts. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the USA and Israel.
Tamar teaches workshops in tapestry weaving as well as in papercutting arts. She gives talks and powerpoint presentations about the history of tapestry art and folk traditions of papercut art. Click HERE for information on exhibits and workshops.
