A TAPESTRY exhibition celebrating the heritage of Northern England is going on display this month.

The Fabric of the North exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum, Redcar starts on October 14 and runs until January 21.

It brings together the work of more than 30 weavers, who have been inspired by Northern heritage.

The exhibition was developed by the British Tapestry Group and includes displays ranging from internationally acclaimed artists to relative novices, including children.

Demonstrations, posters and videos by British Tapestry Group members from around the world will also be on display.

Weaving materials and equipment will be available for sale from one of Weaversbazaar's famous pop-up shops.

Councillor Karen King, deputy leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, said: “This is another prestigious and interactive exhibition to be hosted at Kirkleatham Museum and for anyone interested in weaving and tapestry the ‘Fabric of the North’ exhibition is definitely one not to miss.

“Kirkleatham is home to a treasure trove of artefacts and exhibitions, covering local industrial, maritime and social history. Visitors can also enjoy the beautiful grounds, with woodland trails and activities for younger visitors.”

Exhibition designer Jane Riley said: "This is going to be an amazing vision of Northern England. It’s not just about looking, there will be opportunities for interaction too, and you might even like to purchase one of the exhibits.”

Many of the artworks will be for sale, at prices ranging from £20,000 down to affordable Christmas presents.
