Clackmannanshire Tapestry

Great Tapestry of Clackmannanshire

Two years ago, thousands of people came to Clackmannanshire to visit the Great Tapestry of Scotland which was brought to the Speirs Centre in partnership by Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSI) and Clacks Council. Now after much planning and discussion with local heritage experts, CTSI is delighted to finally have a Clackmannanshire Tapestry, also designed by Andrew Crummy.

During the upcoming Volunteers’ Week (1st of June – 7th of June) CTSI will be taking to the road to allow local people first view of the new tapestry. We are encouraging as many people as possible to come along and  offer their ideas for what should be included on our tapestry.

We want the tapestry panels to highlight the main industries of Clackmannanshire, both past and present, including coal, weaving, wool, glass and pottery,  and brewing and distilling as well as our beautiful scenery of the Forth and Ochil Hills.

Testimonials

  • If people want to learn something new, we enable that to happen by giving them the training and skills – and along the way they get good company and a sense of achievement from what they have made
    Archie Scott Committee member, Wee County Crafters
  • I get a lot of satisfaction as an RSVP volunteer and I would recommend getting involved. Volunteering Matters to me because of the impact it can have on our community and making a difference to peoples lives. It gives me the opportunity to keep active and to contribute to my community in retirement.

  • Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made - we both get so much out of it. I look forward to spending time with her every week and we are always commenting on how much we have in common! Loneliness is something that can affect anyone at any time, and it is projects like this that are so important in helping to stop it. I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless
    Katie Wardlaw Befriender, Volunteering Matters
