Terri Dewhurst


Terri qualified with a Masters in the Conservation of Historic Objects with distinction, from the University of Lincoln in 2013. It was at the University of Lincoln that she and Leah met, thanks to a mutual love of textile objects and historical fashions.


With extensive experience of working as, and alongside volunteers in small to medium sized heritage organisations (including work with Leicestershire County Council's museum service and a work placement with eminent textile conservator Sheila Landi), Terri is ideally placed to plan and deliver WHConservation's training solutions in conservation-related topics to museum staff, volunteers and laypersons alike.


Terri has been the recipient of NADFAS bursaries to encourage and facilitate development of skills in the heritage sector, and played a central role in setting up and running award-winning project “Loughborough Museums Together”, which had volunteer-led collections care at its core. Alongside her work with WHConservation, Terri continues to manage and support heritage volunteers with Leicestershire County Council.
