The team of textile enthusiasts have been meeting regularly at Norwich Castle, to create a giant tapestry which tells the story of two East Anglian rebellions against William the Conqueror.

For six days during the Festival they are at The Forum, eager to teach their skills and to talk about their two-year, mammoth embroidery project.

Examples of the work in progress are on display, near the entrance to the Gallery throughout the Festival. Read more here.
