Working with communities across the Forth Valley, Froglife will create a Mapestry, 12 map tapestries depicting local people’s ideas of local and natural heritage with one tapestry per month of the year. Sessions will be hosted across 12 different venues across Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire throughout 2020 and into 2021 – why not come along and add to our Mapestry – we’d love to see you!
The completed Mapestry will go on tour across 17 venues in the Forth Valley for two years to share the ideas of local heritage communities have designed. Click below on each venue to see more or see details for how you can attend on our events page.
Our future Mapestry sessions are currently postponed due to social distancing but we are making plans to have them back up and running as the situation allows and can’t wait to see what local heritage is to you soon!
Each Mapestry session is led by Froglife staff and an experienced textile artist, Maija Nygren.
Most of our materials to create the Mapestry are unwanted fabrics and textiles generously discounted from Edinburgh based ‘All Together Edinburgh’ – a social enterprise where funds are directed towards training those with learning disabilities – see more here.
