About Us

Welcome to the Conservation of Fine Art (CoFA) society!

We aim to provide opportunities for conservators, enthusiasts, and colleagues in related fields to engage in extracurricular conservation-related activities and social events.

We go on outings to conservation studios, museums, and sites of historical interest, as well as organise talks and plan workshops on relevant topics. We also like to gather socially for many other activities like movie nights, walks and catching up in the pub!

This society provides a platform for learning something new as well as building a network of professional connections and friends who share a mutual passion for the preservation of cultural heritage. We are an inclusive society, so even if you don't know much about the conservation of cultural heritage but are intruiged about it, please feel free to come along to any of our events!

We will be combining in-person events with online events and will adapt to government guidelines wherever necessary.
