About the artist


Misako Nakahira is a Japanese tapestry artist and lecturer. Her practice includes paper weaving, tapestry, ikat, felting, macramé, and yarn spinning. Most recently Misako’s practice has focused on the genealogy of stripes interrogated through tapestry.


Nakahira weaves her tapestries with spun washi paper, cotton, and other materials that are ‘familiar to life.’ She believes that the hand-woven details breathe life into the cloth.


Nakahira was an artist in residence at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in South Melbourne, in December 2023.
