Every object and project is different, if you’re not sure which service you need, we’re happy to discuss it with you.
We offer specialist practical conservation treatments for three dimensional objects regardless of material or time period. We ensure that all conservation treatments are to the highest professional standards and are carried out by Icon accredited conservators. We work both on-site and in our fully-equipped lab in Birmingham city centre
