Tapestry

The Battle of Lewes Tapestry will hang in Barbican House Museum on completion and will describe and celebrate this nationally important victory which led to the calling of Britain’s first attempt at a representative parliament.  Would you like to have a go at stitching it?  We want as many people as possible to take part. The design currently being completed by local artist Tom Walker is fantastic and it will include fabric, naturally dyed yarns and stitching techniques as close as possible to those used in the 13th century. If you haven’t stitched for a while don’t worry as tapestry group members and expert embroiderers Maggie Lanning and Jan Newbury will be holding a workshop on Battle of Lewes Day, 28th May.

You will need to attend at least one of the workshops and stitch a sampler before you will be able to stitch on the tapestry. You can book by emailing Jackie Bennett, jackietapestry@gmail.com.Please forward this invitation to any friends, colleagues elsewhere or relatives who you think might be interested and to any colleagues not on the main address book.  Everyone is welcome.   We look forward to seeing you there.

Here is the fabulous design by Tom Walker:
