Summer exhibition from 19 may to 22 august 2021

Weaving Nature

1400 to the present day

The Museum of Lodeve invites you into a rich and abundant universe - a host of tapestries featuring natural motifs from 1400 to the present day.

As you weave your way through these monumental works (up to 7 metres in length), you will travel from 'mille-fleurs' (Renaissance designs of many individual flowers arranged irregularly) to abstraction. Throughout the exhibition, diverse pathways open up - here, an unexpected detail, there a technical device used to interpret a flower, a leaf or a tree.

In this family-friendly exhibition, all ages will discover something new within these impressive compositions. Each one of the woven works of art is an invitation to experience the joys of careful observation and to refresh our intimate connection with the natural world.


One exhibition, multiple venues

Weaving Nature [1400 to the present day] was created by the TRAME [S] network, threading together five establishments involved with woven art in Central France: the Museum of Lodeve, the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie, the abbey of La Chaise-Dieu, the Dom Robert museum, and the Jean Lurçat workshop-museum. Each venue is exhibiting different tapestries, and all have the same theme - Weaving Nature.


In 2021, Weaving Nature is present in four locations:

■ April 3 - August 22: Museum of Lodeve (Herault)

■ April 1 - October 3: Jean Lurçat Workshop-Museum (Lot)

■ April 17 - October 3: Dom Robert Museum (Tarn)

■ April 10 - November 1: Abbey of La Chaise-Dieu (Haute-Loire)
