Grayson Perry exhibiting at the Abbot Hall, Kendal

    Newer Older

    In two large tapestries exhibited at the Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal, Grayson Perry tells life the story of a fictional character, Julie Cope. This tapestry tells the story of her early life.

      These are beautiful. I see they are described as tapestries but they look more like appliqued and thread art rather than a woven tapestry or even embroidered like the Bayeux Tapestry.
      Through free motion quilting I am developing skills in machine embroidery and variations of applique but I have yet tackled figurative work. Thanks for sharing.

      I'm wrong - he does make tapestries. Just reading www.artscouncilcollection.org.uk/sites/default/files/Gray...
      Going to try to go to Blackpool before 15 December.
