Historical Background

Designed by Great Tapestry of Scotland artist Andrew Crummy, this embroidery was stitched by the public while the Great Tapestry was on show at Kirkcaldy Galleries in the summer of 2015. It was then completed by a dedicated team of volunteers. The panel celebrates the rich cultural, social and industrial heritage of Kirkcaldy with references to, among others, the linoleum industry, Kirkcaldy Galleries and Adam Smith.
