South East Conservation Centre was established in 1972 in Hastings 0ld Town specialising in the restoration and conservation of Oil Paintings and Gilded frames. It moved to its present location in central St Leonards-on-Sea in 1988. Since then we have been involved in numerous projects for a huge range of clients from private collectors and enthusiasts to museums both local and national. We have worked with galleries and picture dealers, framers and interior designers.
We have cleaned hatchments and altarpieces for churches as well as statues and gilded furniture. We repair carved wood and composite gilded frames , mirrors and overmantels that may require cleaning, stabilising, replacement of missing areas of moulding, matching or re-leafing.
