Welcome to The Muban Educational Trust

The Muban Educational Trust is a small, non-profit making body based in Putney, London. It is dedicated to the preservation, conservation and development of the extensive collection of Chinese woodcut prints assembled by Christer von der Burg and the late Verena Bolinder-Müller during the late 1990s.

The Trust is administered by Haiyao Zheng, David Barker and Anne Farrer, three individuals with broad interests in the field supported and advised by a board of Trustees.

Our current major project is the completion of a pictorial and biographical archive of the collection which will assist access to the collection by both specialists and non-specialists alike.
