WORCESTER

The Arts Society Heritage Volunteers, both here and in mainland Europe, work to conserve and preserve our heritage, saving our hard pressed museums, historic houses, churches and gardens many millions of pounds. The volunteers help in non-specialist but vital ways by caring for collections of all sorts thereby preserving and keeping our heritage accessible to all.

The Arts Society Worcester's volunteers have been involved in repair, cataloguing and restoration at the library, the Dyson Perrins Museum, and in the restoration and conservation of altar frontals and vestments at the Cathedral. In conjunction with the Cathedral Embroiderers, ten new Offertory Bags were created in canvas. Recent Lottery money has enabled our volunteers to set up a workshop at Hartlebury Castle to replicate the lovely embroideries worked by Lady Julia Carew and the Hartlebury Castle Chapel's altar frontal.

Training is given in all aspects of the work for those who feel that their enthusiasm may not be matched by skill.
