Conservation is a precise combination of art, history and science. Scientific analysis and investigation help us to understand the methods and materials used in the making of an object. A study of the contextual and social history enable us to appreciate its background, significance and the reasons for deterioration. As each project is unique, extensive preliminary investigation and research are essential to inform the development of a robust but sympathetic methodology for treatment. Our specialist teams comprise conservators, scientists, art historians and experienced and knowledgeable craftsmen and women with a passion for the work and its many and varied challenges.
