Wendy Slade studied at De Montfort University, Lincoln for a BA(Hons) in Conservation/Restoration and graduated in 1998. This degree course encompassed the disciplines of furniture, ceramics, ethnography and gilding, with the latter being Wendy's chosen specialism.
Further experience was gained at a gilding studio in Paris, working on traditional French gilded chairs and settees. Returning to her home city of Norwich, Wendy has worked as a gilding conservator for the last 20 years with a client base made up of local museums, private collectors and antique dealers.

" Wendy Slade is worthy of both note and praise . Twice she has come to my rescue and restored perfectly a couple of damaged gilt frames and an oil painting which broke free from its chain and crashed head first into a glass-topped coffee table. No one would ever know! Wendy excels at what she does; her work is sheer professionalism and she's a delightful lady. A rare gem indeed." J. Scragg. Norwich 18.08.2016
