Gideon re-instated

In June three conservators from the Studio travelled to Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire to rehang the 11th conserved tapestry from the Gideon set.

The tapestry had travelled to the property after the conservation treatment and was waiting for us in the Long Gallery.

You can see a short video of the rehang on the Hardwick Hall Facebook page. To watch the video click here.
