The Wolsey Angels: Their Rediscovery and Restoration


The Wolsey Angels: Their Rediscovery and Restoration

To accompany the exhibition of the Wolsey Angels on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum, Diana Heath, the conservator responsible for the restoration of the Angels, joins us to talk about their rediscovery and restoration

Because they were not originally intended to be kept outdoors, their surface appearance changed a lot over the years. In addition, the separation of the two pairs of Angels and the loss of their wings, has meant that extensive conservation work has been necessary both for their future preservation and to make them suitable for display.

Diana will take us through the fascinating history of the Wolsey Angels and the work that she has undertaken. (Talk not suitable for children.)

To book for the talk, please contact the museum on 0116 225 4900, tickets £4.50 (includes basic refreshments).
