The Yorkshire Bayeux Tapestry Project

As a way to promote an awareness of the battle of Fulford, we decided to produce a tapestry in the style of the iconic work that now resides in Bayeux.

And then the fun began as we had to work out how they made it and to understand the complex layers of meaning that the designers worked into the stitching in the original tapestry.

This is a pictorial essay of the project.
