Textile Conservation Centre

The Textile Conservation Centre is a specialist centre for research and training at the University of Southampton. It was founded in 1975 by Karen Finch OBE and was based at Hampton Court Palace for nearly 25 years. In 1998 the Centre merged with the University of Southampton, one of the UK’s top research-led universities, and in 1999 it relocated to a purpose-designed building on the University's Winchester School of Art campus in the city of Winchester.

In April 2009 it was announced that the University of Southampton has decided to close the Textile Conservation Centre on 31 October 2009, prompting widespread concern by academics and historians.[1]
