My presentations on the subject of paper conservation have been very warmly received by a variety of regional groups such as historical societies, church groups, bookbinding classes and private individuals who are interested in preserving their family articles.
The talks are customised for each group to ensure they are of particular interest and relevance to the audience.
The talk is approximately 40 minutes long and includes:
- an illustrated Power point presentation on paper conservation.
- practical advice on how treasured items can be stored and displayed safely in the home and examined for early signs of damage.
- a display of conservation materials and artworks with typical damage found on paper items.
- Participants are invited to bring along any paper items they are concerned about for free advice.
Please contact me if you are interested in booking a talk for your group. I would be delighted to listen to your particular interests and needs.

“Zoe, your info and delivery are both excellent”
“Very interesting indeed”!
“Zoe give us a fascinating talk discussing conservation of a wide range of items. We heard how to preserve our own documents and heirlooms (and how not to!) and what a wide range of items the professional is required to conserve. An interesting display of items too.” (D.Cook)
“When you are fortunate enough to come across a lady as passionate as Zoe about her subject, Paper Conservation quickly becomes absorbing. It is also a real eye-opener to anyone with an interest in old books, prints or ephemera.” (A.Dickinson)
‘I found the presentation extremely interesting and useful as I’m sure everyone else did’ (J.Hogan)
