York’s ‘Bayer’ Tapestry: Introduction

After being asked to take part in the Big City Read 2012 I came up with the concept of the York version of the Bayeaux Tapestry but in paint.  I see lots of art groups in and around York and initially thought it would a great idea to bring them all together in one piece of art.  We then opened it to everyone to show how creative York people are – I thought I should start the ‘Tapestry’ with and example of what was needed, and what more iconic symbol of York – than York Minster.
