Wendy Toulson ACR
I have over 30 years' experience of textile conservation. Services I provide include consultative visits, estimates, full written and photographic documentation. I treat all types of textiles, whether full cleaning and conservation are required or simply advice on mounting, storage and display. A particular speciality is the treatment of ecclesiastical vestments and furnishings. I also provide collections surveys, condition reports and advice on funding of projects.
My clients include museums, heritage organizations, private owners and churches.
Publications include: The Ornaments: The Textiles, in Hereford Cathedral - a history, ed. G.E. Aylmer, J.E. Tiller, London, 2000
I came to you in total uncertainty that my most prized possession - my Welsh rugby cap - could be restored to its former glory. I trusted you and your skills, and was elated with the result. My Welsh rugby cap has been returned to its former glory .. thank you Wendy .
