Intern Benedict appears in the pages of the NADFAS magazine

Posted on Wednesday 16 July 2014

Lincoln conservation graduate, Benedict Ryan, completed an 8 week internship with Hare and Humphreys, undertaking the restoration of the Library ceiling at the privately owned Combermere Abbey in Cheshire. The internship was generously supported with a grant from NADFAS, The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies, who published a review of the project in the Summer 2014 issue of their magazine.

Benedict was involved in many aspects of the project, from the initial investigative and recording phases, through the big job of paint removal and to the final redecoration and conservation works.  On top of this he assited with the ongoing documentation and compilation of the final report.  He tells us he enjoyed it all! 

The NADFAS grant supported H&H in offering Benedict a wage, accomodation and travel costs and all the materials and Health and Safety training he needed.  And we're extremely glad, as Benedict was a brilliant intern and continues to work for the company.
