Great Tapestry of Romney Marsh

 

Showing the history of Romney Marsh from 700AD – 2000, the Great Tapestry is an exciting project that will be five metres in long when finished. It tells a story of life on the Marsh and shows both the heritage of the area and how life for people, plants and wildlife has changed over the centuries. Each image will be embroidered by volunteers from the local community using Romney Wool and there will be an opportunity for everyone to add a stitch at future community events.

The Tapestry is the creation of the IMOS Foundation and supported by the Fifth Continent Project.

Great Tapestry of Romney Marsh contributes to Rediscover project theme.

There is an opportunity for local people to use their needlework skills, bring the design to life and be part of a community project.

The Great Tapestry of Romney Marsh is currently being embroidered and the IMOS foundation are still looking for more people to get involved with the sewing. Contact the project team for more information.

There’s been a lot of progress

There’s been a lot of progress and on a recent visit to the IMOS Foundation it was great to see parts of the Tapestry that have been carefully embroidered onto a linen backing.

Visit our Blog & News page.

It is planned to create a number of short films about Romney Marsh during the life of the scheme and this will include recording the progress of the projects. Go to the film footage page to get details of the films we have produced so far.
