The Liverpool ’08 Tapestry

Embroidered tapestry panels

Booking:
Free exhibition, no booking required

This exhibition shows a sample of work from 150 local people who have produced  around 200 embroidered tapestry panels. They feature iconic images of the city such as the Superlambananas, historic buildings and aspects of Liverpool with special meaning to the individual embroiderers.

The project is a continuation of Liverpool's 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations. TJ Morris Ltd, the company behind discount retailer Home Bargains, is working with the Merseyside Embroiderers’ Guild to use these panels to create a tapestry that will capture the spirit of Liverpool - its people, places and passions. The tapestry will be completed in 2011.
