In 2017, conservator Hannah Riley studied and repaired the Flemish tapestry The Death of Dido, currently on view in Once Upon a Tapestry: Woven Tales of Helen and Dido. This lecture explores the twists and turns Riley and her conservation companions encountered as they wove their way across the more than 350-year-old "textile landscape."
