Conservation

At her dedicated conservation studio in the Stroud Valleys, Hannah specialises in restoring and conserving a wide range of antique textiles and costume, alongside stretching and mounting textiles ready for presentation. 

Throughout the last twenty years Hannah has evolved unique skills and techniques for conserving a wide range of printed, woven and embroidered textiles from the sixteenth to early twentieth century. Having developed a wealth of knowledge for identifying and sympathetically conserving textiles, along with a keen eye for detail, she applies uncompromisingly high standards to all her work.

Hannah offers her expertise to private clients, museums, collectors, and dealers, both locally and internationally. She has worked with a select range of clients, including Paul Reeves, Compton Verney (Warwickshire), The Laing Gallery (Newcastle), Sotheby’s (London), and Lyon & Turnbull (Edinburgh).

Advice can be sought at her studio or, by arrangement, provided at the client's location.
