Liverpool 08 Tapestry

People, Places & Passions

by Gill Roberts

What do you get when you put together 152 stitchers, 40 metres of canvas, 103 miles of wool and give them over 15,000 hours to sew? The answer is the Liverpool 08 Tapestry, a community arts project that uses some 5 million stitches to create an artwork 23 feet long by 7 feet high, and a unique project within the city of Liverpool. This book documents the contributions of the individuals who brought this project to life.
