Until 29th March

The Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine showcases Katie Russell’s series of tapestry weavings, Woven Waves, inspired by the Battle of Jutland. The greatest sea engagement of the First World War, the Battle took place over two days in 1916 off the west coast of Denmark, involving 250 ships and over 100,000 men, involving the main British and German battle fleets.

The tapestries on display combine art, naval history and science, and are the result of Katie’s research at the Sea War Museum in Jutland. The history of tapestry weaving is also explored through a series of objects and artworks, giving visitors the chance to try out some of the techniques for themselves.
