TEXTILES

Textiles are all around us; as part of clothing, furnishings, furniture and decorative objects. The wide-ranging experience of Lincoln Conservation and their partners means that we can work with clients on textiles both as standalone objects, and as part of a more holistic, inclusive programme of conservation to an historic interior.

GILDING

Highly experienced gilding practitioners for large and small projects undertaken on-site or in our studio. Lincoln Conservation have the experience to clean, reinstate missing elements and re-gild using a variety of techniques from conservation to full restoration.

Our philosophy is one of minimal intervention using traditional materials, tools and techniques, providing a finish that is sympathetic to the historic integrity of the project being undertaken.
