There are not many people who have not seen pictures of the Bayeux Tapestry. You might have been one of the lucky ones and have seen the actual hanging in Bayeux, on one of your holidays.
It is probably one of the most famous textiles, which tells the story of the Battle of Hastings and the events leading up to it.
There are however many more Embroideries and Tapestries which tell stories.
The unit 'Talking Textiles' gives you the chance to design and make a hanging of your own, on whatever theme you like.
Making pictures using materials threads and wools to tell stories of Wars, events or myths has been popular for centuries, and this WebQuest has been designed to make the job of researching your theme easier. Once the research has been done you are then ready for the'Making Stage'.
