Senior Paper Conservator at the V&A
IIC Congress and scroll mounting placement

In addition to the IIC Congress, organised a four-week placement at a scroll-mounting studio in Nanjing Museum.  “I benefitted hugely from this experience as not only can I now mount hanging scrolls but also album pages.  This new knowledge will benefit the V&A collection through practical conservation, but also the profession as a whole as I intend to provide a master-class in basic mounting skills and the use of xuan paper as a lining material, which few conservators are able to use confidently.”
