Banner conservation in action

Banner conservation in action

23 December 2011

Over the last few months work taking place in our Textile Conservation Studio has been filmed. 

The filming has concentrated on the conservation of one particular banner, the Amalgamated Stevedores Labour Protection League banner. Conservator Leanne Tonkin talks through some of the processes involved in conserving this banner and you can also see some of this very detailed and careful work in action.  We also hear from Kate Chatfield, Exhibitions Manager who talks about the involvement of the Conservators in designing the new galleries and in particular the display of banners from the museum’s collection.

The film has been divided into four smaller films and is available on the PHM channel on youtube –
