Hastings 950 Tapestry

The new Hastings tapestry

Celebrating the people of Hastings 2016. A new ‘tapestry’ of 950 panels is being commissioned to represent the people of Hastings. It will be displayed in St Clement’s Church in the Old Town to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings – and you can be a part of this inspirational project from St Clements. Keith Leech, a member of the church council, explains.

Join in this unique new art work: you will dress your panel as yourself – and
together the panels will create a rich tapestry showing the people of
Hastings 2016. We are aiming to make 950 panels. Each completed
panel will form part of the sewn collage. Can you help?

The launch of panels will take place in St Clement’s Church in the Old Town
on Saturday 9 April at 12 noon. From this time, you may buy your panel (£5)
and dress your figure. Each month, there will be a designated date for
participants to buy new panels and return their completed figure. You may
return your panel throughout the summer up to September.

One person per panel. And please, images suitable for display in a church.

The completed tapestry will be inaugurated as part of Hastings Week on
Sunday 16 October in St Clement’s Church.

Launch of the panels: April 9 St Clement’s Church 12-4pm. Refreshments available.
