The British Association of Paintings Conservator-Restorers works hard to promote and foster the practice of paintings conservation in the UK and around the world. We are the professional organization for conservator-restorers of paintings, and have members internationally.

Membership is restricted to practising restorers, conservation scientists, students on recognized training courses and trainees in private studios. More experienced restorer members can have applied for Fellowship, our professional qualification. Fellows would be expected to have an advanced level of competence, as well as suitable premises, sound business practice and general immersion in the field. A representative cross-section of their work was also inspected by examiners appointed by the Council of the BAPCR.

The BAPCR administers a scheme for public enquirers, to direct them to existing Fellows in their area (see ‘Find a Restorer’). They can then be confident that their artworks are in the hands of an accredited practitioner. Members receive our twice-yearly journal, the Picture Restorer, now in its twenty-second year of publication, and attend regular meetings with a guest speaker at the Art Workers Guild in Central London.
