Stitching the stars

04 July 2023 18:00 - 22:00 The Royal Society Free
Stitching the stars quilt

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

The Royal Astronomical Society launched the bicentennial quilts project in 2020 to celebrate its 200th anniversary. The patchwork quilt will be on display at the exhibition: it is made up of 100 fabric squares - depicting planets, stars, galaxies and more - received from people across the globe. The solar system quilt is a work in progress, and we need your help to finish the project.

Come along to the workshop delivered by Annie Hogan to add your stitches to a piece of history in the making!
