Textiles in all their states at TAMAT

TAMAT, the museum of tapestry and textile arts in Tournai.

Tournai is an important place for tapestry from the 15th to the 18th century.

The Tournai workshops produced prestigious historical tapestries, which are still exhibited today in the greatest museums. Since this golden age, Tournai perpetuates the tradition of the tapestry high lice with contemporary works. This is the purpose of TAMAT, which presents historical creations as well as contemporary works.

We will discover, among others, the new exhibition Dressing for Worship, revealing the splendor of the liturgical textile of the cathedral of Tournai.

We will end this visit with a little detour to the restoration workshop.

We will also take advantage of the discovery of the Queen Astrid Square whose design and buildings were realized by Bruno Renard, architect of the Grand-Hornu.
