The Great Tapestry of Scotland is currently on display in New Lanark.

The exhibition opened on 18 May 2018 and will run through to 1 July 2018

For the first time ever, ALL of the panels from The Great Tapestry of Scotland (including the Rosslyn panel) are exhibited alongside photography showcasing the volunteer stitchers and the magnitude of work undertaken by them and the full project team to create the 143 metre long masterpiece.

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

And for the first time, a panel dedicated to the role of Midwifery in Scotland is on display.

Don’t miss this! You will also be able to view the plans for the future of the Tapestry and its permanent home.

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