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.

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.
