Woven by Freya Sewell and Rudi Richardson at Dovecot across the summer of 2014, Norwegian artist Magne Furuholmen's Glass Onion tapestry will form the centrepiece of a new exhibition at the venue from 6 Mar - 25 Apr 2015.

Taking its name from the 1968 Beatles classic, the tapestry was inspired by a woodcut print design of the same name - created by Furuholmen following his first visit to Dovecot in 2013.

Watch a short film below, detailing the making of the work and featuring interviews with both the artist and the weavers:
