Showcasing artist Katie Russell’s series of tapestry weavings inspired by the Battle of Jutland.

The Battle of Jutland took place between 31 May - 1 June in 1916 off the west coast of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula, between the main British and German battle fleets. It was the largest battle of the First World War with 250 ships and over 100,000 men participating.

This innovative exhibition weaves together naval history, science and art, offering an insight into Katie’s research undertaken at the Sea War Museum Jutland. Through a series of objects and artworks the history of tapestry weaving is explored, and on display for the first time are the extraordinary multibeam scans of the Battle of Jutland shipwrecks from the nautical archaeology expedition that marked the battle’s centenary in 2016.
