#HouseholdHeritage - Looking After Family Heirlooms
Online conservation workshop by Anupam Sah
Each of us, as individuals, have some objects that are of material, emotional or spiritual significance to us. We care for these objects, but despite our efforts they tend to get damaged and we wonder what we could have done to look after them in a better manner. At our online conservation workshop #HouseholdHeritage, heritage conservationist Anupam Sah will take your questions on the care of these family heirlooms - be they jewellery, objets d’art, documents, photographs, garments, ceramics, porcelain, whatever - and provide simple and practical solutions by which they can be looked after in a better manner, ensuring a longer life for them and for the memories that they stand for.
