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. The space has been newly refurbished. The self-contained accommodation includes workrooms for students and a wet lab, dye lab, chemistry lab and analytical lab.
