David and Carol Carter reviewed: Painting Restoration

"Being new to oil painting and frame restoration, my wife and I joined Rachael with the aim of understanding how to restore a sizeable Victorian painting of our relative, known as "Uncle Harry". Our concerns that we might cause potential harm to the portrait were quickly allayed by Rachael whose whole ethos was only reversible repairs would be considered. After careful inspection, we tested the various coloured paints with cleaning solutions until we discovered what would work without causing harm. To our surprise, once shown how by Rachael, we managed to clean the surface revealing far greater detail then we had ever imagined on day one. Likewise, the delapidated frame was due to be renovated on day two but Rachael kindly offered to re-glue the joints overnight so that rennovations could proceed at full-pace the next day. Once again we were astounded at the progress made on day two including recasting the missing plaster work. Both fantastic courses, well done Rachael for all the support."

Louise reviewed: Painting Restoration

"This course is fantastic. So informative and hands-on. Rachel knows all there is to know on picture restoration (ie she looked at everyone's pictures and had solutions for all the problems we raised with our projects - and some were very complicated). Also, in addition she is a lovely person, and a great teacher - she not only knows her stuff, she is also great at expressing what she knows to our benefit. She's also a great confidence booster - which is great when you are not sure what you are doing, as a beginner, ie she reassures you it will work/ be OK etc. even on precious paintings. "

"Dear Louise, Thank you very much for your very kind review. It was lovely to meet you this week and investigate your paintings. I really hope you enjoy continuing to clean them and I look forward to seeing them and yourself again! With best wishes, Rachael"
