The Craftmasters: Dream Weaver.

World-renowened textile artist Helena Hernmarck uses the concept of the eye's perception of light and shadow to weave monumental tapestries that hang in buildings throughout the world. As she and her assistants work on two new pieces, she comments on her development of photo-realism on the loom, the discovery of techiques that simulate three dimensions on a flat surface, and her concepts of applied creativity and design. The engaging finale is seeing the tapestries come off the loom and hung after months of painstaking labor.
