Tapestries that have been made to commemorate the 800th anniversary of signing of the Magna Carta have been put on display in Kendal.
The 12 tapestries have been sewn by Royal embroiderer Rhoda Nevins and 8 of them are on display in Kendal's Quaker Tapestry Museum from 1 November to 29th November.
The Magna Carta was signed on 15th June 2015 by King John, limiting the powers of kings and queens to protect the people's liberties. It is one of the most important documents in Britain and the Commonwealth.
The rest of the tapestries will be finished by May in preparation for celebrations with the Queen in June.
"It is lovely to have eight of the twelve tapestries here as well as Rhoda Nevins to talk about them at the launch event. The 'tapestries' as we call them are actually embroidered panels made in a similar style to the museum's own 77 Quaker Tapestry panels. The panels produced by Rhoda and her team are beautifully done and this exhibition presents a rare opportunity for people in the North of England to see them at a local venue."
