Hand spun, dyed, felted, stitched and woven.

A detailed tapestry celebrating the Coronation of Charles lll and showcasing the range of creative skills among the members of Norfolk Countryside Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.

Look closely to see what can be achieved with hand dyed, felted, woven, spun, knitted and crocheted textiles.

The design brief was to celebrate the King's well-documented love of nature and, in particular, his gardens at Highgrove House.

The tapestry is divided into four seasons and Norfolk flora and fauna feature heavily.
