Lecture: Conservation of the Dido Tapestry: A New Chapter
Hannah Riley, Principal Conservator, Riley Textile Conservation
Saturday, April 13, 2019
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."
Presented in conjunction with Once Upon a Tapestry: Woven Tales of Helen and Dido, on view December 7, 2018–May 27, 2019.
