The workshops currently employ seven full or part-time restorers who have been trained in textiles or related fields, and  have all undertaken extensive practical and theoretical training in-house. The restorers are sent on appropriate training courses and to conservation conferences in order that they keep abreast of the national and international professional standards currently accepted in the field of conservation. Most recent courses include:

  • Pest treatment
  • Dying technology
  • Treatment of large objects
  • Health awareness for conservation
  • Conservation science
  • Health and safety
  • First aid
  • Tapestry conservation: principles and practice
