Working with communities across the Forth Valley, Froglife has created a Mapestry, 12 map tapestries depicting local people’s ideas of local and natural heritage. Sessions were hosted across 12 different venues throughout Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire in 2020/21. Our Mapestry Tour will start in December 2020 – why not come along and see the amazing Mapestry creation come true through the efforts of the local communities of the Forth Valley!
Come Forth for Wildlife delivered 25 Mapestry sessions with 813 attendees. Click below on each venue to see more.
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. Our Mapestry Tour details are being finalised so check back soon to find out where the Mapestry will be heading!
Each Mapestry session was 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.
