Game of Thrones fans: Winter is Coming to Bankfield Museum

This new addition to Bankfield Museum coincides with their Exquisite Threads embroidery exhibition and is on display throughout the summer holiday until 10th September.

The Embroiderers’ Guild led the design and production including contributors from The Royal School of Needlework, Hand & Lock and Fine Cell Work.

The work is making its first Northern debut in Halifax. It has only been displayed for one weekend in central London so far, and Bankfield Museum are thrilled to be able to display it for their visitors.

Don’t miss the stunning Game of Thrones White Walker embroidery at Bankfield Museum. Featuring a formidable White Walker, the work is over 17 feet wide and was originally got_for_webcreated for HBO as a backdrop to mark the eagerly awaited release of Games of Thrones series five on DVD. The highly detailed work features imagery from one of the most intense battle scenes in TV series history – the massacre of Hardhome (Series 5 episode 8). The embroidery took over 5,000 hours to complete using a wide range of textile and mixed media materials, creating a one-off piece that showcases the artistry of hand embroidery and textile design in an impressive and imposing way. The embroidery is on display until 10 September.
