Leah Warriner-Wood


Leah graduated with distinction class honours from the University of Lincoln’s Masters in the Conservation of Historic Objects course in 2011, at the top of her graduating class and having been awarded a bursary from the Anna Plowden Trust for future talent in the Conservation profession.


In addition to her academic successes Leah has worked on conservation projects including the conservation and documentation of a rare set of seventeenth century Flemish tapestries at Doddington Hall near Lincoln, where she was responsible for the supervision of a team of volunteers, and as Curator at True’s Yard Museum in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. The latter project involved re-designing existing permanent displays and implementing new exhibitions alongside a largely volunteer workforce, as well as advising on conservation issues.


In her spare time, Leah has volunteered in conservation since 2009, as a Conservation Assistant for the National Trust at Belton House, for the Church of England (Lincoln Diocese) and for Nottinghamshire County Council. She currently lectures on the Conservation programmes at the University of Lincoln alongside operating WHConservation.
