The conservation treatments mainly take place in the conservation workshop located in close to Peckham Rye Station. It has passive environmental management, secured by a Red Alert alarm and insured for work on items up to £100,000 in value, on site and in transit.
Site specific consultations can also be given, which is preferable for archives as storage and environmental conditions can be assessed alongside the needs of individual items. Conservation treatment should always be appropriate to the future usage and issues such as reader access; on-going digitisation programs; storage requirements and safe handling; which are all crucial to any solutions proposed. Any treatments are ethically considered and fully supported by photographic and written documentation. I frequently support applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund and National Manuscripts fund and offer specialist advice to museums and libraries, and private collectors alike. I can also offer training to archives and library staff and can tailor course content to your needs.
