This pack is designed for use by teachers, gallery education staff and other educators. It introduces the work of artist Grayson Perry and explores the tapestry series The Vanity of Small Differences through a number of different themes inspired by the work, offering ideas for educational projects and activities:

The tapestries provide rich inspiration for learning in a number of curriculum areas including art, English, geography and citizenship and for developing core skills.

The activity suggestions are targeted primarily at pupils aged 7-14, although they could be adapted for older and younger pupils.

The activities may form part of a project before, during or after a visit to see the tapestries or take place at school using the images of the tapestries in this pack or the information on the British Council Collection online.
