London, Kew Palace, Kensington Palace State Apartments and the
Banqueting House, Whitehall.

The Textile Conservation Studio conserves some of the nation's most
vulnerable works of art--many of which have been on open display in
the Palaces for centuries.  We are now recruiting more professional
conservators to help meet the significant conservation challenge of
preserving the collection in its original setting for the
foreseeable future.

projects and develop staff, we look to everyone in the team to play
an active part in building the Studio's reputation as a world class
textile conservation service.
