    The third biennial exhibition of contemporary tapestries from around the world

    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.
