MA Conservation Studies: Ceramics and Related Materials student Rose has recently carried out conservation treatment on two very small elf candle holders, just in time for the festive season. Read more about the project in this blog post.
Earlier in 2019, West Dean College of Arts and Conservation were contacted about conserving a selection of painted plaster figures from a Nativity scene. Potentially dating from the Nineteenth Century, the figures had been residing in local church, St Mary The Virgin, Upwaltham (West Sussex).
