Living Local: Cutting-off a tapestry from the loom

This clip is the end of Fabric of the North exhibition film and shows the Iraqi and Syrian children cutting off their tapestry ‘Living Local’ from the loom, the last part of the film and time for a party*. Unfortunately, Covid 19 lockdown happened before the beginning and middle of the film could be finalised.
