 Biting the hand that feeds us since 2002.

SPINNING AN EPIC YARN.

Those who’ve yet to catch up with Game of Thrones now have a crafty solution - no square eye-inducing telly binge required.

To mark season seven, Tourism Ireland, Publicis London, and Jelly London have unveiled a two-hundred-and-fifteen-foot tapestry chronicling seasons one to six.

Visitors to Belfast’s Ulster Museum can now view the whole bloody saga, as rendered by Jelly London's artists. There’s still work to be done, though - embroiders at Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen will add more as season seven unfolds. The final piece will measure two-hundred-and-fifty feet.



There is an online version available, too. A handy search function allows GoT fans to pinpoint their favourite battle, betrayal, or beheading (other, more creative executions are available).

The work follows 2016’s ‘Door of Thrones’ campaign. Tourism Ireland crafted a series of ornate doors inspired by the programme's signature imagery. County Antrim's Dark Hedges (GoT's Kingsroad) provided the wood.

Story threads.  

Shooting locations like this are a considerable tourism draw. Scotland’s Glenfinnan viaduct, for example, attracts Harry Potter trainspotters year round. This campaign aims to strengthen Northern Ireland’s bond with Game of Thrones long past the finale.

It also shows the art of weaving is still - unlike many Game of Thrones characters - alive and well.
