Woodstock Wall Hangings

Summary:

The history of Woodstock is told in the 17 wall hangings which can be seen in the Assembly Room within the Town Hall. The hangings have been made during the last 10 years by the Woodstock Borders, a group of older residents.
 
The Woodstock wall hangings have been made during the last 10 years by the Woodstock Borders, a group of older residents, most of whom have also been involved in making the kneelers for the parish church.
These textile pictures tell the history of the town. They are mainly hand embroidered but some painting has also been used.
The size of the 17 panels, approximately 5ft in depth and between 2ft and 8ft in width, dictates the main technique - appliqué. The wall hangings were made to fit the elegant Assembly Room within the Town Hall.
The Town Hall is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am-1pm. A representative is happy to talk to those interested in design, textiles or community projects.
