Liverpool tapestry celebrating the city’s culture to go on display at Museum of Liverpool
A HUGE tapestry created to celebrate Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture will be displayed at the Museum of Liverpool.
The Liverpool Tapestry: People, Places and Passions will be unveiled in the Skylight Gallery tomorrow.
The tapestry was produced by more than 150 people, who hand-stitched 338 individual panels, spanning over six metres in length.
The panels feature iconic images including Superlambananas, the city’s historic buildings, and aspects of Liverpool that have special meaning for the individual embroiderers.
The tapestry is sponsored by Home Bargains and Merseyside Embroiderers’ Guild.
Janet Dugdale, director of the museum, said: “The exhibitions and displays continue to be created for and by the people of this city, told through their passion for the place they live.”
