Allyson Rae

Freelance Organic Artefacts Conservator
Specialist placement with the Department of Natural History at Norfolk Museums Service

Allyson’s placement focused particularly on the conservation of feathers. “This was a fascinating opportunity to broaden my experience and share my knowledge.  Following the placement I have been invited to lead two training workshops for Share Museums East on feather care and conservation for local museums and to run a Feather Conservation Workshop hosted by the Natural History Museum, London.  My new understanding of the inter-related issues will be invaluable in developing and delivering these workshops as well as in my on-going practical and advisory work with a wide range of organisations.”
