Recap of the Historic Houses Exhibition

It was fantastic to attend the Historic Houses Exhibition on the 12th November. The team had a fantastic day meeting attendees and exhibitioners with some extremely interesting conversations with current and future customers. During the day we were showing off many of our products, primarily our renaissance waxes that are supplied by Picreator.




Our own Jamie Chatfield was showcasing the uses on cleaning brass products without compromising the copper layers on the brass. Jamie took care to explain the process of using the renaissance wax to those at the show to make sure that the products were being used correctly to meet the conservation requirements of our customer.



We also managed to escape the stand to listen to a fascinating talk from Sue Biggs, Director General at The Royal Horticultural Society. Sue talked about the mutually beneficial relationships organisations such as the RHS can have with institutions and historic houses. It is through this collaborative work that education and showcasing to the public can occur in a way that benefits the public. This is extremely important, as the need for conserving and restoring comes from people enjoying and appreciating the objects we work on. At Conservation Resources we can only claim to play a small part of this process, but however small we can still appreciate the significance of the conservation work that is being undertaken.

A thank you to the Historic Houses Association for hosting a really impressive event, we are very much looking forward to booking next years exhibition into the calendar. A massive congratulations to Sarah Roller from Godinton House that won our exhibition hamper of goodies, and a huge thank you to everyone that took the time to come and have a chat.
