Making the Great Tapestry of Scotland

Exhibition Dates: 18th May - 1st July 2018 (Open 10am - 5pm)

 

Exhibition Information

See the behind-the-scenes creation of The Great Tapestry of Scotland as it returns to New Lanark in 2018. For the first time ever, a selection of key panels from The Great Tapestry of Scotland will be exhibited alongside photography showcasing the 1000+ volunteer stitchers and the magnitude of work undertaken by them to create the 143 metre long masterpiece. 

The exhibition will also include original sketches and personal works by Andrew Crummy, the man behind the tapestry’s beautiful illustrative designs depicting key moments in Scotland’s history.
