The Silver Threads Tapestries go on tour of the Borough

Celebrating 25 years of bringing community arts to the Borough, The Walsall Silver Thread Tapestries project has produced 11 tapestries illustrated by artist Hunt Emerson and hand stitched by an army of needlework volunteers from the local community. They have stitched over 12 square metres over the last 8 months.

Representing the Borough of Walsall, each tapestry features Walsall’s living history and diverse geographical communities.  ‘Silver Thread’ highlights Walsall’s prominent people, places and events.
