Featuring six tapestries and textiles from around the world, this book explores the stories told through the art form, from medieval legend in The Lady and the Unicorn to biblical tale in Harriet Powers' Bible quilt. Each tapestry and textile is looked at in detail, and a more general introduction to the medium provides historical context.

Fun, step-by-step projects show children how to create their own stained glass windows, using the techniques of the art form. Print a pattern, make a Ghanaian Fante flag or weave your own tapestry!

The Stories in Art series explores the narratives told through different art mediums. A great introduction to the history of art for children at Key Stage 2.
