Making the Great Tapestry of Scotland
About Making the Great Tapestry of Scotland

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.

Have you seen the Great Tapestry before or were you involved in its creation? Don’t miss this!

New Lanark are delighted that Making the Great Tapestry of Scotland will be the second exhibition to open the redeveloped Exhibition Gallery in 2018.
