Great Tapestry of Scotland: People's Panel

To celebrate the Scottish Parliament’s 15th anniversary and the return of the Great Tapestry of Scotland, you can now stitch your way into history by contributing to our ‘People’s Panel’.

People's Panel for the Great Tapestry of Scotland

The People’s Panel was designed by Great Tapestry of Scotland artist Andrew Crummy and is a colourful commemoration of the Scottish Parliament building. It will hang in the Scottish Parliament as a part of our permanent art collection once complete.

Experienced volunteer stitchers will be on hand to guide those with no or limited experience of stitching and will operate on a first come, first served basis.

The opportunity to stitch the Panel will be available during the times and dates below.

Please note the Parliament is closed on a Sunday.
