Museum of Liverpool displays Liverpool Tapestry

. April 29, 2012 . 0 Comments

A huge tapestry, created to celebrate Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2008, is on display at the Museum of Liverpool.

Following on from Mike McCartney’s Liverpool exhibition which ends on 15 April in the Skylight Gallery, The Liverpool Tapestry: People, Places and Passions will open on Friday 27 April until Sunday 9 September.

Conceived and funded by Home Bargains, the Tapestry has been produced by more than 150 people, who have hand-stitched 338 individual tapestry panels to make up the triptych, which cumulatively spans 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. – www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk
