See Gordon Cookson’s work at The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition 7-18 August 2017

Gordon Cookson, Harrow Open Studio’s woodturner, is showing his wooden wall plaque as part of The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition. This exhibition of 21 embroidered panels brings Quaker history to life will be at the Friend’s House opposite Euston Station in London.

Gordon’s piece, inspired by The Prism Tapestry and the same size, 25 x 21 inches, is made out of an old old pitch pine bench from the Ealing Meeting House.

The Quaker Tapestry began in 1981 as a project to brighten up the children’s room – little did they know then that it would brighten up many a room! Since the late 1980s the Tapestry panels have been all over Britain, as well as to some parts of America, France, Ireland and many others.
