Methodist Tapestries

methodist tapestries at etherley

The Tapestries Collection is an ambitious project to create a series of freestyle embroidered panels, telling stories about the Methodist movement. They will eventually be displayed at the Weardale Museum in Ireshopeburn, County Durham, but for 1 day only, they are being displayed on Saturday, the 1st of June at Etherley Methodist Church, DL14 0HZ.

Over 50 embroiders from all over the country are involved in creating these beautiful works of art. Each has chosen the stitches, colours and textures they feel appropriate to the design, which means that every panel has its own unique character. These exquisitely embroidered panels give a wonderful insight into the social history of the local communities and generations of ordinary men and women who lived, worked and worshiped in this area and beyond.

The exhibition will take place on Saturday 1st of June 2024 from 11.00am to 4.00pm. Entrance is free, and free car parking is also available in a special car park, which will be clearly signposted.

Food will be served throughout the time the exhibition is open.

Please contact Marie on 01388 526692 if you require any additional information on this unique day.
