The people at the Bowes Museum in Durham are preparing for re-opening with a brand new exibition of quilts – but of course many of them will have needed the care and attention from the conservation team.

They have created two videos showing some of the work by their textile conservator, Cecilia Oliver which goes on behind the scenes – and which has been still going on whilst the Museum has been closed to visitors.  Click the links below to watch the video (they will take you to Youtube so pop back here to continue to look at more news)
