Meet E & A Wates furniture restorers and craftspeople

One hour guided tours of E & A Wates furniture restoration workshop can be arranged for small groups. Working with beautiful pieces of furniture from all periods we show you our restoration process. Meet the craftspeople involved and see their skills at work. Please contact us to arrange a guided tour.

From an antique chaise longue to a French rocking chair you'll get to understand the materials we use including horse hair and traditional coil springs.

Antique restoration
Split timber, missing veneer and precious inlay are daily challenges, find out how we deal with them and the perils of woodworm.

French polishing
Enjoy furniture being brought back to life! We remove fading, ring and water marks and stain new timber repairs to blend in with old patination.

Fine gold and silver leaf is applied to create and repair beautiful mirror and picture frames and decorate fine furniture.

Cane and rush work  
From a bergère cane chair to an Arts and Crafts rush seat the beauty can be restored.
