With proper care, ATW tapestries can last for centuries. The ATW offers specialist tapestry conservation services for tapestries big and small, held in both private and public collections. Cleaning will help the tapestry look its best and ensure longevity. Attaching a museum-quality lining and hanging system will help protect the tapestry from dust, insects and physical wear.

Conservation services include:

  • tapestry surface cleaning (back and front)
  • repair of minor holes or losses
  • specialist advice on larger-scale projects
  • preparation and attachment of the lining
  • restoration of the lining
  • construction of hanging battens
  • consultation regarding optimal hanging of your tapestry to avoid dust, moisture, sunlight and other detrimental environmental conditions.
  • de-installation and reinstallation
  • pick up and delivery arrangements

  • The ATW welcomes conservation enquires and can provide estimates on services.
