The Cordis Prize for Tapestry was initiated by Miranda Harvey and her husband, the crime writer Ian Rankin. https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/17498523.weaving-a-new-story-ian-rankin-on-how-he-fell-in-love-with-tapestries/?ref=twtrec
They wanted to celebrate tapestry by offering an £8000 prize, the world’s largest, with an exhibition for shortlisted entries, to celebrate and stimulate the medium. This year was the fourth time it was offered and the first in a beautiful and light-filled venue, Inverleith House in the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh.
This must see exhibition runs until 27 May and is open from 10.30 to 5pm.
