ObjectLab Services

ObjectLab provides a high quality service in all aspects of objects conservation to museum standards. ObjectLab undertakes the conservation of a wide range of materials and object types (both organic and inorganic), including social history, ethnography, natural history, decorative and applied arts.

Additional services include condition surveys and assessments of individual objects and collections, exhibition checking, assessments for loan and storage, and mounting objects for exhibition and display, packing objects for transportation, and advising on storage. Work may be undertaken either at the studio or on-site, depending on the project and scale of items to be worked on.
Treatment proposals, condition reports and full treatment reports are carried out as part of every treatment, including photographic documentation.
