The Dundee Tapestry at V&A Dundee

The Dundee Tapestry will have its world premier and will be on display at V&A Dundee
from Saturday 20 January 2024 to Thursday 28 March 2024.

Come along to see a unique, handcrafted collection of tapestries depicting Dundee’s past, present, and future, where you can explore the city’s industrial heritage, creative achievements, biodiversity, and people.

The project has brought together over 140 volunteer stitchers from Dundee and the surrounding area to produce a fascinating and captivating image of Dundee on 35 beautifully hand-stitched panels.

Welcome to The Dundee Tapestry

35 one-square-metre panels celebrating the history of Dundee. A unique project uncovering hidden connections in the story of the City of Discovery. From export to expat, the city's influence stretches across the globe. Made by a team of collaborators, the tapestry aims to tell our story, stitching together the community and their kinship to this small but rare city.

Nine panels at different stages of completion were on show at V&A Dundee in March 2023 - pictured are some of the Tapestry team and stitchers involved.


The Dundee Tapestry project was launched on 23rd August  2021 and is now almost at completion.

There are well over 100 people stitching the 35 panels and many more members of the public have added stitches along the way.
