About Us

The Conservation of Fine Art Society (COFA Society) is the collective society for the Conservation of Fine Art MA program (Paper, Paintings and Preventive). However even though this society is based from the program, we are open to all students interested in art conservation! Conservators aim to restore, conserve and monitor the conditions of works of art, often working within the realms of museums, archives and private practice so many of our outings or visits will be focused around these areas.

We aim to cultivate interdisciplinary student relationships both within Northumbria University and with other Universities in the UK to generate an open exchange of knowledge to benefit students as a whole.

Through out the year we will have orangized trips, special talks and presentations, as well as social events!
