Fabric of the North

Tapestries showcasing the landscapes, industry and social history of Northern England

This stunning exhibition mixes regular and 3D tapestries, large and small, mounted and unmounted, purely woven and mixed-media, but all on one theme: our northern heritage. The exhibition is curated and managed by northern members of the British Tapestry Group. Visitors will enjoy a range of works, from small try-outs by recent beginners all the way through to magnificent pieces by top-class commissioned artists. Entry is free, and includes have-a-go weaving sessions for adults and children, spinning demonstrations, and films of tapestry weaving. Weaving materials will be available to buy. There are related ticketed talks and workshops and free drop-in workshops
