Halford Restorations
Jamie Halford BA(Hons)
Conservation and Restoration of Fine Antique Furniture
Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire

Jamie graduated in 1997 from Buckinghamshire University in High Wycombe with a BA (Hons) in Furniture Restoration and Craftsmanship.

Jamie trained in cabinet making, french polishing, traditional upholstery, conservation and restoration techniques and associated skills.

He has since worked extensively with other established professionals, gaining valuable experience typically sought from apprenticeships. Working on a large range of items, from humble family pieces of purely sentimental value, to very fine pieces by some of the finest historic makers.

Clients have included dealers, collectors, institutions and the general public. Such broad experience develops an understanding of an appropriate balance between conservation and restoration in whatever context a valued item finds itself.

Jamie currently receives trust and respect based on high standards, qualifications and longstanding professional relationships.
He has continued to add to his skills and knowledge in and around the subject, in addition to recently gaining a distinction in BSc(Hons)Environmental Science although with no imminent plans to change career.
