Welcome to the Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History
The Centre brings together existing areas of expertise in textile conservation and technical art history. Object-based, interdisciplinary research underpins teaching and research.
The Textile Conservation Centre Foundation has worked with the University to transfer the intellectual and physical assets of the former Textile Conservation Centre at the University of Southampton to the new Centre in Glasgow.
The Centre occupies a whole floor on Level 3 of the University’s Robertson Building with additional space on Level 5. The space has been newly refurbished. The self-contained accommodation includes workrooms for students and a wet lab, dye lab, photo studio, chemistry lab and analytical lab. Analytical resources for teaching and research include spectrometry, tensile testing, accelerated ageing and dye analysis (uHPLC).
