Louise Squire ACR
Having trained and then worked at the Textile Conservation Centre, University of London when it was based at Hampton Court Palace during the 1990's, I established my own studio in 1999. Here I undertake the conservation of all textile objects, ranging from large scale hangings, such as tapestries, and costume, flat textiles, rugs, and smaller three dimensional or flat objects. Many of the objects are complex and involve other materials, including paper, leather, metals. When needed and if working on collections, I employ other trained conservators. My clients include many of the large London Museums (V&A Museum, Royal Academy of Art, Tate Gallery, National Gallery, and Museum of London) and private clients who have their own collections, or individual family heirlooms. I undertaken condition surveys on textile collections here and abroad, and have worked on the collections and installation of textiles prior to the opening of the Museum of Islamic Art and the National Museum in Doha, Qatar. My other interests lie to sewing, knitting and all related handicraft, cooking, interior design and not least, my family.
