A message from textile artist Maria Wigley to the Bearwood Tapestry embroider volunteers

What is the Bearwood Tapestry 2021?

We Are Bearwood with the help of Bearwood Community Hub and support from Creative Black Country are embroidering a Bearwood Tapestry. 100 volunteers have received a kit designed and created by textile artist Maria Wigley, which contains everything they need, including printed instructions, to stitch a small panel on a theme of nature. Maria will combine each panel to form a hanging which will be displayed in the Bearwood Community Hub. There will be some zoom sessions with Maria Wigley at the beginning of the project and zoom coffee mornings with Renata of Bearwood CC to help facilitate the project.
