Charleston Covered Weekend - Dec 2 & 3
Join us over this special weekend to discover the processes at work 'behind the scenes' as our conservation team and valued volunteers work to clean and conserve the House over the winter.
Once the House is closed to the public after a busy season, our conservation experts step into action to undertake a series of tasks including condition reporting, conservation cleaning, restoration and conservation of all our decorative objects, paintings and decorated surfaces. Objects and paintings, rugs and fabrics are taken down, conservation cleaned, and wrapped in special acid free tissue paper or white cotton.
See the ground floor of the House as it prepares for winter, when decorative objects and paintings are covered allowing the wall decorations to come to the fore, and speak to our team of conservation staff and trained volunteers who will be on hand to explain the threats the collection faces and the steps we take to protect it.
As a treat, we are welcoming photography in the House over this weekend.
Enjoy a warming coffee and cake in our cafe and look for unique Christmas gifts in our Charleston shop to round off your visit.
