Conservation Open Day, 24 August 2017

High Life Highland Conservation Service offers a range of services, advice and training. We specialise in:

  • Conservation, stabilisation, cleaning, re-construction and repair of archaeological and historic artefacts including ceramics, metals, wood and organic materials.
  • Bookbinding and repair of volumes, parchment, paper, seals, maps, plans and photographs.
  • Advice on suitable packaging including custom-made boxes and folders, storage environments, exhibitions and preservation equipment.
  • Collection surveys, including collections condition surveys and preventative condition surveys with regard to grant applications and preservation of collections.
