The diverse and historic collection of a school is often entwined with the rich history of the institution. Artwork can inspire students, staff and prospective parents, playing vital role in connecting the present day pupils to past alumni, scholars, and historic events.

Fine Art Restoration Company has played a key role in preserving artworks and items of cultural value to the public, including projects completed for the Duke of Wellington, Church of England, and conservation work funded by the Historic Houses Foundation. 

Recent projects include the restoration of an 18th century Robert Adam ceiling in Mayfair, the restoration of oil paintings including a Mater Admirabilis for Woldingham School in Surrey and the rescue of a 19th century mural at Westonbirt School following an escape of water. We have also assisted schools in restoring artworks following accidental damage.

Museum conservation

Keeping important artworks and items in their very best condition is a priority for both academic and cultural heritage, as well as creating a well maintained appearance within the grounds and buildings they inhabit.

Conservation with historic integrity

All of our conservators have professional training to museum standards. This ensures that all artworks or historic objects in their care will not have any unessential or unethical intervention during the restoration process.

Conservation treatments and assessments can be provided on site or within our purpose-built conservation studio. Our team is experienced in having a swift response to disasters when high value and culturally important items are at risk, whether this is through private arrangement or with the liaison of an insurance firm.

Our professional conservation team can assist in the restoration of:

  • Historic and contemporary paintings
  • Works on paper such as documents, engravings and watercolours
  • Decorative objects such as porcelain and terracotta
  • Frame restoration and gold leaf application
  • Interior artworks and decorative features
  • Furniture repairs with historically accurate techniques and treatments
  • Indoor and outdoor sculptures of various materials
  • Textile conservation including curtains, rugs, tapestries and costumes
  • Unusual and specialist items such as taxidermy

You don’t really own old family paintings, you are merely a custodian, so having them restored can be a nerve-racking experience. That why I went with an expert team I could trust to restore a painting that is very dear to my heart. The restoration is superb and my family will continue to enjoy the results for generations to come.

I really appreciate the restoration and framing and framing you did for me. The result is very pleasing and I am sure that it will look terrific in the Royal Dragoon Guards Museum in York.
