Details

While Nunnington Hall’s 17th century Verdure tapestries are away for conservation work, The Essex House Tapestries: The Life of Julie Cope (2015) by Grayson Perry will hang in their place. These artworks represent, in Perry’s words, ‘the trials, tribulations, celebrations and mistakes of an average life’. See how two very different sets of tapestries are a beautiful contradiction in design, status, storytelling and manufacture, illustrating the evolution of tapestries. Made possible with the support of the Crafts Council.
