Fine Art Conservation

Our sister company, Artworks Conservation, is one of the leading conservation companies in the UK, specialising in the conservation and restoration of all works of art on paper, including watercolours, prints and drawings.

Artworks Conservation works with a range of clients from private individuals and collectors to art dealers, museums, galleries and institutions. Existing and recent clients include The Mercer Gallery, Harrogate, The Hepworth Wakefield, Tate Liverpool and the National Trust.

Based in a converted chapel just outside Harrogate, North Yorkshire, our qualified conservators can advise on a comprehensive range of conservation treatments such as; removing foxing spots and stains, repairing loses and tears, and flattening artworks that have been folded or cockled. We work in a modern, well equipped and secure studio. We also undertake high quality mounting and framing and can advise on display, preservation and transporting art.
