Conservation for everyone

Professional conservator. Working in museums and excavations since 2015. I am interested in bringing conservation closer to the general public. Use this website to see some of the objects I’ve worked on, read some articles on conservation issues, and find information on courses and services I can offer.

What I Do

Take a course or contact me for more information on conservation

The Home Collection Game course

Course on the basics of preventive conservation, so you can keep your home collection safe.

Crochet Foundations course
