The Vyne, a National Trust house in Hampshire, holds an important historical tapestry collection. Several years ago, the tapestries were damaged while the house was being renovated. They were removed for conservation and the tapestry room was cleared of furniture leaving the room free for a display.

So many tapestry artists are drawn to the landscape as their source of inspiration. The flow of water runs through many of the works. Blue-greens, inky indigos and turquoises of waves, rivers, pools and splashes appear and reappear.

Members from the BTG are demonstrating tapestry weaving at the Vyne, a National Trust house in Hampshire.
The tapestries from the house’s tapestry room are being conserved which has provided an opportunity for us to exhibit contemporary tapestries and explain the nature of tapestry weaving with a display of historical text panels, illustrative tapestry samples and showing visitors the techniques involved. The display continues to the end of the August.
