The Tapestry Project 2019 – Britain Narrates Itself

This project sits at a crossroads of coincidences: the coming to light of this work marking a version of Britain’s past, a chance to show it again in a big space, and the immediate upheaval around Britain’s future.
Tim Hopkins’ new immersive installation around the 240 foot Hastings Embroidery imagines the energy of this as it rushes past us on its way to being something else.
