Our work

One of The Vyne's tapestries is carefully rolled ahead of three years of conservation.

The Vyne tapestries appeal 

Historic repairs have begun to fail and the backings have warped, putting strain on the fragile fabric of six eighteenth-century ‘chinoiserie’ tapestries. Your gift today can help rescue the legacy of John Vanderbank, the greatest tapestry weaver of his time.
