Protecting chairs for years to come

It’s time to protect our chairs!

Action has been taken this winter to preserve two of our lovely chairs. These chairs are showing their age and are in need of some support. Thankfully our intern is a seamstress and has been able to use her previous training to apply conservation grade netting. The netting is dyed to blend into the chair so that it is hardly noticeable once applied, for this went sent Jenny to Conservation Textile Company to learn the technique. This netting will support the fabric of the chairs and reduce the damage done by light and other factors.
