York Foundation for Conservation & Craftmanship

YJA has worked on historic buildings and monuments to restore architectural features, plasterwork and traditional and contemporay art work. Wherever possible authentic materials and methods are considered. This can involve techniques such as paint and pigment analysis for flat 3-D surfaces, contemporary mortar analysis and investigation.
We have developed a highly specialised consultancy and restoration service for Scagliola, Stucco and Stuccolustro. This can involve working on site for architecturally bound forms.

All restoration work is recorded and where necessary carefully analysed in order to establish the method of sympathetic restoration/consolidation. Sampling for mortars is done to B.S. and also tailored specifications. XRD and similar analytic techniques are employed.
