Tapestry of Touch tour

The Great Sense Pompom Challenge took place at the end of 2013. We received 6,000 pompoms, and created a giant piece of sensory art – the ‘Tapestry of Touch’.

Thousands of artists with and without multi-sensory impairments contributed to the tapestry from all over the UK, and it is travelling the country to raise awareness of multi-sensory impairments and of Sense.
