Dundee Tapestry Project
The Tapestry brings together hidden histories of Dundee’s residents as well as exploring the city’s industrial heritage, its creative achievements and its biodiversity. All of which are intrinsic to Dundee’s role as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design and a City of Discovery.
A team of over 100 volunteer stitchers from Dundee and the surrounding area have been working on the panels since spring 2022, many practicing the art of stitching for the first time as they work in groups to share, collaborate, learn new skills and tell Dundee’s story stitch by stitch. The panels on display are works in progress and offer an insight into the art of making a tapestry.
The Tapestry has been designed by the artist Andrew Crummy and the Project is led and managed by John Fyffe of the Weaver Incorporation of Dundee and Dr Frances Stevenson, Senior Lecturer, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
