Poppy Singer offers a comprehensive service for the conservation of textiles.

I have a wealth of experience in the treatment of textiles of all types:
– ancient and modern
– two or three dimensional
– European or Oriental
– painted or embroidered

Upholstery

18th Century Daybed from Hardwick Hall

The National Trust.

The embroidered top cover of the daybed was treated without interfering with the original upholstery. Areas of loss were supported and infilled with sympathetically dyed silk fabric. Loose metal threads were secured. Edging braids were protected by covering with dyed conservation net.

 

Freud's Consulting Couch

The Freud Museum.

The iconic couch was removed from Freud's study for conservation and analysis. All work was carried out at the museum in full view of visitors and the entire process was filmed by Jeremy Millar
