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.

From Monday 13th February 2023

Nine panels at different stages of completion are on show at V&A Dundee until Tuesday 28th March 2023.
There are also free events planned to connect the community of stitchers and members of the public during the tapestry's time at V&A Dundee. 

It’s never too late to get involved!


The scale of the Dundee Tapestry project means we have 35 panels to fill. As a project for Dundee, and by its residents, we’re appealing for volunteer stitchers to help us create this project. 

Whether you’re experienced or a beginner, we’ll be there to support you on your creative journey.
