Julie Cope’s Grand Tour:
The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry

23/02/2019 – 22/04/2019

Julie Cope is a fictional character created by Grayson Perry – an Essex everywoman whose story he has told through two large scale tapestries and an extended ballad presented in this exhibition. The Essex House Tapestries: The Life of Julie Cope illustrate the key events in the heroine’s journey, while The Ballad of Julie Cope illuminates her hopes and fears growing up, coming of age and finding her feet in modern Britain.


This was a touring exhibition from Crafts Council.
