Ellie & Mel
Meet our new graduate conservators
Eleanor Smith and Melissa Nadarajan,
who will be working on our next exciting project - the conservation of the
John James Morris Journals.
Our thanks go to the National Manuscript Conservation Trust who have awarded us a grant of £12,195 towards the conservation costs. If you would like to help our fundraising efforts please visit our crowdfunding page.
The Curious Cabinet Project - Working with the Charterhouse Museum
We have now finished working on an Arts Council funded project with the Charterhouse Museum. The last few months have seen enormous changes in the collection of prayer books and Bibles that we have been working on. Every book has been assessed, cleaned and boxed and the whole space cleaned up and readied for the future. We have worked alongside staff, residents and volunteers in the community events and sparked some amazing inspiration in the Creative Writes online workshops and visits. Some of the worst damaged books were treated in the Codex Conservation workshop in London. Sam has made some videos with ACAP Media about their conservation journey. These are available in the "services" sections.

Talks about finding the
John James Morris Diaries
Out on a walk one day our heroine Jo makes an important find.
These diaries cover 68 years of Cornish life written by one man -
John James Morris. We have helped Jo and the volunteer team to apply for a grant from the National Manuscript Conservation Trust to preserve these journals for all to enjoy.
