Pebble Mill Tapestry

In 1984 Marian Foster and Kaffe Fassett oversaw the Heritage Tapestry, which was made up of 6″x 6″ squares sent in by viewers of Pebble Mill at One. The tapestry was quite eclectic with each square having a different subject, colour, style etc. Apparently at least 2,000 viewers contributed to the tapestry. Sewing the tapestry together must have been a big job. It was displayed a a number of exhibitions, but housed at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. It left Chatsworth in May 1993. I remember the tapestry hanging in the corridor overlooking the courtyard at Pebble Mill, which ran along the side of Studio A.

I cannot find a photograph of the tapestry, and I don’t know what happened to it when the building closed in 2004. Please add a comment, if you know any more about the tapestry, or what happened to it.
