This large-scale textile treasure has been created in four panels, each measuring three-and-a-half metres by four metres. Crafted by more than 300 local artists, it took 10,000 hours and 200 metres of hand-dyed silk to complete. The artists have employed a number of techniques including embroidery, cross stitch, weaving, patchwork and quilting to create Yarns. Yarns Artwork in Silk tells the story of the local area – exploring its history, landscape and culture. The display includes an audiovisual presentation which expands on the work.
