CALL TO YARNS!
It is time for The Renfrewshire Tapestry
Andrew Crummy, Scottish artist and designer – who drew the panels for the Battle of Prestonpans, the Great Tapestry of Scotland and the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry – will be working together with an eclectic group of people to create a tapestry for Renfrewshire. It will be a celebration of the amazing global importance of this part of Scotland, a tourism draw and have its part to play in the City of Culture bid 2021.
Want to know more? Want to take part?
Everyone is welcome to our Call to Yarns! – The Renfrewshire Tapestry project launch
On Saturday 20 February 2016
At Paisley Abbey
From 11am until 1pm
Andrew Crummy will be introducing the project, as well as leading a workshop.
You can also:
- Take part in a textile walk
- Chat to historians and meet up with a monk, walk with Wallace, greet a gallus Mill Girl…
- Tell your stories and memories
- Try your hand at a stitch or more
- Please also – Donate your tapestry wool – authentic Anchor tapestry wool is needed to sew the tapestry. We are determined the tapestry will only be sewn with authentic Anchor yarn. Please look out any tapestry wool that you have in your households… and bring it with you.
The Renfrewshire Tapestry will reflect the wonderful history of Renfrewshire. Everyone who is involved will be acknowledged in this stepping stone in the continued celebration of the unique status of Renfrewshire.
