Bayeux Tapestry Mosaic, Hastings Library

We were then instructed to stabilise the vulnerable Salviati glass smalti Bayeux Tapestry mosaic in the Library Entrance.
This complicated project involved the removal careful removal, reconstruction in the workshop and reinstatement of a section of the mural, together with numerous in-situ repairs and consolidation works. Elements of the mosaic were fabricated using very thin strands of glass ‘filato’, the same as that used on ‘micro mosaics’.
