Millennium Tapestry

18 January to 29 February 2020
Ruralist Room

The idea for the tapestry came from Mrs Anne Lingard Bell of Derwenlas. She brought together a group of friends and gave each of them a square of canvas on which to embroider an image of a favourite place in or near Machynlleth. They had one year, 1999, in which to create these squares, using whichever method of embroidery they liked. These were then assembled and sewn together with the help of Mrs Audrey Beaumont, framed and put on permanent display in The Tabernacle.
