Public Engagement

If you are interested in organising an event with us, please contact us.

The team at KSH & Co are dedicated to championing the conservation of our artistic cultural heritage. Our work is fascinating and involves beautiful artworks with historic, and sometimes local, significance. We are regularly invited to deliver illustrated lectures about the conservation and study of paintings to various interested groups. In this way we may inspire enthusiasm for our work and help people understand how it is essential for the preservation of our artistic and cultural heritage. We are frequently invited by clients to present an account of the conservation treatment and research of their painting to private groups, such as parishioners or staff, in the form of presentations or leaflets, or simply to be available at an event to talk to visitors.

Examples of some past events are listed below.
