Lanercost Dossal
The Lanercost Dossal is a wall hanging which has hung behind the altar in Lanercost Priory from 1887 until recently, when it was sent away to be restored.

As part of our mini topic, each class worked collaboratively on a wall hanging which depicts Lanercost and the surrounding area.
Mrs Boyce, Mrs Hamilton and Class 3 worked diligently on embroidering the border of the wall hanging.
Class 2 investigated different materials and designed and created elements for the middle section. Class 1 explored plaiting and basic running stitch and also created elements for the middle.

Our wall hanging and project book were part of an exhibition in Lanercost Priory during the Lanercost Arts and Music Festival in June 2011.
