Description: The idea for the Usk Tapestry was instigated by local craftswoman Margaret Turner to express some of the beauty of Usk and surrounding area. The Tapestry was designed by local artist Susie Martin and supervised by stitching expert Sarah Windrum. The tapestry measures 6ft x 9ft approximately and differs from normal tapestry work in that it was worked with 5 strands of wool with up to 5 different colours in each needle full. This achieved thousands of colours for a shimmering effect. The Tapestry was stitched by many local volunteers over approximately 8 years.
