Furniture Conservation

Furniture conservators are specialised in the conservation of wooden material and its structure and surface treatments. The conservation of metal fittings and other materials belonging to furniture are also covered in the programme. The studies are built on the techniques of furniture making such as veneer, inlay, gilding, retouching and upholstery. Period furniture and wood anatomy are additional topics covered during the curriculum, and students are also familiarised with metals, leather and plastics.
