Specialised frame conservation
Artlab’s skilled and professional conservators are available on Consultation Days to provide free advice on the care and condition of your artworks, historical items and family treasures.
We assess paintings, prints, drawings, books, photographs, ceramics, glass or wooden objects, textiles and all forms of decorative arts.
During the consultation, we can give an estimate of costs if conservation treatment is required. If you decide to proceed with our service, we will provide an official quote for your approval before commencing any treatments. There is a minimum charge of $550.00 including GST.
Appointment schedule for items
Prints, drawings, books and photographs: once a month on a Tuesday
Paintings, decorative arts and textiles: first and third Thursday of the month
Note bookings are essential so please contact us.
If you are unable to attend a Consultation Day, we can arrange an alternative time.
