Description

Ulster Museum is home to a stunning tapestry depicting key scenes from every episode of hit TV show Game of Thrones.

From Winterfell to the Iron Islands, this epic tapestry brings to life the infamous events, locations and story of the most popular television series of all time.

Weaving the story from Seasons 1 to 7, this impressive tapestry gives Game of Thrones fans the perfect chance to reminisce over all the action that led to the finale of Season 7, with further panels depicting the story of Season 8 due to be added to the tapestry in June 2019.

Local Craftmanship

Designed by hand but weaved by a state-of-the-art machine and hand finished in Northern Ireland, the linen used to form the background of the tapestry has been sourced from Ferguson’s Irish Linen, one of the last surviving linen mills in Northern Ireland.

The delicate hand embroidery completed by a team of 30 stitchers at the Ulster Museum and the Ulster Folk Museum replicates a look consistent with such traditional hand woven cloth. With blood red weddings, golden Lannister hair, emerald green wildfire, cold-blue White Walkers and jet black ravens, admire their chain stitch, split stitch, back stitch, running stitch and seed stitch as you stroll along the tapestry.

From King Joffrey’s golden crown to Daenerys’ shimmering white and silver hair, threads of metallic, cotton and silk yarns bring vibrancy and lustre to the most popular television series of all time.

Please note: Due to the depiction of graphic scenes, viewing of the tapestry is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
