Dundee Tapestry: The people stitching their city’s history

The history of Dundee is being retold by the people of the city in a huge new tapestry, a project run by The Weavers Incorporation of Dundee with the University of Dundee, Dundee City Council and the Embroiderers Guild.

More than 100 stitchers – mainly women – are working on the 114ft (35m)-long embroidery, which is due to be unveiled in July 2023. From the women who worked in the jute mills, to the fashions of the 1970s, Dennis the Menace and the new V&A, it will tell the story of their home city. And there are hopes that future generations will add to the artwork, creating a living document which could bring Dundee’s past to life. Read BBC Report.
