Andrew Crummy at Bookmark 2021
(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
In the 21st century, The Prestonpans Tapestry and The Great Scottish Tapestry revitalised the ancient tradition of telling stories through textile pictures. This tapestry, inspired by Billy Kay’s book, inspired Andrew Crummy to design his most ambitious work which brought together over 700 individuals from 34 countries around the world: 300 panels each took an average of 200 hours to stitch. This illustrated talk is a rare opportunity to see this exquisite work of art.
This event will be Chaired by Lesley Riddoch, a well-known, award-winning broadcaster, journalist, author, cyclist, land reform campaigner & lover of all things Nordic.
Copies of The Great Tapestry of Scotland hardback and , Great Tapestry of Scotland Colouring Book will be available for purchase.
