Our services


We are led by an accredited member of Icon (Institute of Conservation) and we are listed on the Conservation Register. We have worked on projects nationwide; for other museums, corporate clients, trusts, charities and individuals. Below you will find our hourly rate, services, and a portfolio of some of our work.

Rates and estimates

The estimates that we provide for conservation treatments are based on an hourly rate of £38-£40

If the item can be bought in to the studio then this estimate is free of charge. Otherwise the cost will be calculated hourly, plus travel expenses.

Day rates for other forms of inspection and for training days will be based on details specified by the client, and we are happy to discuss these options with you.

The Conservation Studio has been designed specifically for the conservation of textiles of any size between 4cm square to 4 meters square and the flexibility of the space means we often accommodate large flat textiles such as trade union banners, religious textiles, flags, furnishing fabrics and other domestic textiles.  We also treat needlework, samplers, costume and accessories, military, Masonic and friendly society objects. These cover a diverse range of methods from painted, printed, woven and knitted, embroideries, and textiles of modern materials.
