Woven Watercolour comes to Castle of Mey

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet news article image

A beautiful tapestry, crafted by Ben Hymer of Dovecot Studios, is to be displayed at The Castle of Mey, where The Prince is regularly in residence and which was restored by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.  It is a woven interpretation of The Duke of Rothesay’s work 'Abandoned Cottage On The Isle of
Stroma, Caithness'.


The tapestry consists of hundreds of different colours of yarn and took eight months to complete! It will take pride of place showing our visitors the beauty of Caithness, an area close to The Prince’s heart.  


The Edinburgh weaver presented the tapestry to HRH The Prince of Wales at Dumfries House's Tapestry Room.  Dumfries House is the Headquarters of The Prince's Foundation.
