This exhibition showcases artist Katie Russell’s series of tapestry weavings inspired by the Battle of Jutland.

The battle took place 31 May-1 June 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 people involved.

This exhibition weaves together naval history, science, and the history of tapestry through a series of objects and artworks, and visitors will gain insight into Katie’s research undertaken at the Sea War Museum Jutland.

Also on display, for the first time in Scotland, are the extraordinary multibeam scans of the Battle of Jutland shipwrecks from the nautical archaeology expedition that marked the battle’s centenary in 2016.
