It is critical that in order to protect and display our amazing tapestry panels, each one, as it is completed, will be placed in it’s own box frame. To allow us to purchase the first six frames the Trust is delighted to have been granted a generous donation from the “Arts Society Woodbridge”, a gift for which we are exceedingly grateful.
Finished panels will be put on display in the “John Gibbins Gallery” at the Longshed in Woodbridge. When the tapestry is finally complete it will consist of at least thirty panels showing the timeline of the “Sutton Hoo Royal Ship” from the first acorn. The ensuing events over the centuries to the completion, launch and sea trials of the replica ship now being built in the Longshed. There will also be some historical panels of Woodbridge and the River Deben. The Town is intrisically linked through time to both ships. The River is the Heart of Woodbridge and at the Heart of this amazing story.
Frames will be made and supplied by “Deben Frames” of Martlesham.
