Great British Craftography Map raising £ for Solent Mind

Friday, 31 March 2017

Ordnance Survey’s Craft Club has created the stunningly beautiful Great British Craftography Map tapestry, which they are auctioning to raise funds for us. You can bid for this beautiful wall hanging, which contains craft representations of all 91 tiles of the National Grid, until 7pm on Sunday 9 April here: http://ebay.eu/2nPdGl9.

Hazel Slawson, Operations Consultant and OS Craft Club member, says: “The Great British Craftography Map took twenty-one people and three months to complete. As an exercise, it was great being able to think about different regions of Britain, and how to best portray that region in a tile measuring 15cmx15cm, so that people will be able to understand and recognise it. We’re very pleased with the end result and hope that it will raise plenty of money for Solent Mind, who do a brilliant job helping the local community.”

Solent Mind Chief Executive, Kevin Gardner, says, ”This is a wonderfully creative way for OS to help raise money and awareness for Solent Mind, and I’m very impressed. We are very appreciative to OS and its Craft Club for their fantastic efforts, which would look amazing hanging in a home or office.”
