What do you get when you put together 152 stitchers, 338 panels, 40 metres of canvas, 103 miles of wool and give them over 15,000 hours to sew? The answer is The Liverpool 08 Tapestry. The community arts project used some 5 million stitches to create an artwork 23 feet long by 7 feet high, and brought a unique project within the city of Liverpool to life.
This exclusive book gives you an insight into the plans & ideas behind the tapestry and the dedication & hard-work of the team that brought the unique piece together. Take a look at behind the scenes work, the members involved, the thoughts & discussions behind each panel and the way the amazing artwork was finally put together, piece by piece.
Own a piece of heritage from the city that brought you the Beatles, two striking Cathedrals, world renown football clubs, a thriving port, a stunning skyline, endless shops, artistic lambananas, beautiful theatres, museums full to the top of interesting history, the Grand National, monumental buildings, cultural diversity and a sense of humour like no other. Commemorate and celebrate the year this fantastic city was, and will always be, the Capital of Culture.
