The Quaker Tapestry
Tuesday 11th - Friday 28th August 2015, New Lanark Institute. 10am-5pm. Free entry!
Some of Robert Owen’s partners were Quakers and in a perfect link, we are delighted to be displaying the Quaker Tapestry this summer. The tapestry tells of Quaker events and insights and is a celebration of the significant contribution these quiet, non-conformists have made to the modern world. Over 4,000 men, women and children in 15 countries ‘had a hand’ in the creation of the panels which form the tapestry.
This summer, New Lanark will be displaying 20 panels from the Quaker Tapestry. These include:
We will also be hosting a talk linked to the tapestry on Friday 28th August. Tapestry curator Bridget Guest will be discussing her experiences of working on the tapestry and inspiring groups throughout the country to create their own textile projects. Tickets for the talk are £4 and can be purchased by calling 01555 661345, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or online. Tickets include a glass of wine/refreshment and the chance to explore the Quaker Tapestry exhibition . The talk is located in the Institute building, doors open at 6.30pm and the talk begins at 7.30pm.
