News and Events



The Great Tapestry of Scotland is currently off display.

We are working towards an exhibition in New Lanark which will open on 18 May 2018 and run through to 1 July 2018

See the behind-the-scenes creation of The Great Tapestry of Scotland as it returns to New Lanark in 2018. For the first time ever, a selection of key panels from The Great Tapestry of Scotland will be exhibited alongside photography showcasing the 1000+ volunteer stitchers and the magnitude of work undertaken by them to create the 143 metre long masterpiece.

The exhibition will also include original sketches and personal works by Andrew Crummy, the man behind the tapestry’s beautiful illustrative designs depicting key moments in Scotland’s history.

Don’t miss this!

New Lanark are delighted that Making the Great Tapestry of Scotland will be the second exhibition to open the redeveloped Exhibition Gallery in 2018.
