Panel 13 Hastings 950 'Tapestry'

Panel 13 – Hastings 950 Tapestry

2016, knitted wool
Size: 15  cm x 20 cm

The Hastings 950 tapestry is displayed in St Clement’s Church in the Old Town to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. This is my panel which takes the form of a self-portrait. The “tapestry” of 950 panels was commissioned to represent the people of Hastings. 950 individual panels made by people living in Hastings were sewn together to make one large collage. The completed tapestry was inaugurated during Hastings Week on Sunday 16 October 2016, in St Clement’s Church. The event was a part of the Root 1066 Contemporary Art Festival
