Our multi-disciplined team have many years of experience working on a variety of materials. We aim to provide practical, straight-forward solutions in a professional manner and have the experience and knowledge of many different cleaning, consolidation and repair processes to tackle any problem. Often we can provide a rough estimate over the phone and, of course, will supply you with a written method statement and estimate if required.

All of our methods are as reversible as possible and we work closely with our clients to get the results they want as well as making sure we advise them on the care of the object after it leaves our workshop.

As well as hands-on conservation and restoration work, we can advise on packing, travel and installation, provide condition surveys and preventative conservation advice.

Our team works with the following materials: Stone, including marble, alabaster and limestone, metal, including ancient silver, ivory, horn and bone, polychrome, plaster, stucco, terracotta and wood.
