Happy New Year!

Queen Anne's Throne Canopy Conservation

Date: 10 January 2017

Happy New Year and welcome back! For our first post of 2017 we would like to take you behind the scenes and give you an insight into the trial installation we did at Hampton Court Palace in November 2016.

Hear our conservator Kate Orfeur and curator Deirdre Murphy talk about why the trial was so important and what we learnt from it in the video below.

Acquired with the assistance of the Art Fund. Conserved with assistance from Lord Barnby's Foundation, Idlewild Trust, The Radcliffe Trust, The Leche trust, Broadley Charitable Trust and the Worshipful Company of Tin Plate Workers alias Wire Workers. We are grateful for their support.
