Peter Taeymans (°B, 1976) has a master’s in Conservation and Restoration from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, where he specialised in the restoration of wood; his thesis was on the conservation of historical panelling. He went on to study business management and also trained as a sculptor in wood.
Key projects have included commissions from municipal museums and, above all, from the many authorities responsible for church buildings in Flanders and Wallonia, which have called on his services for restoration interventions in altars, communion rails, pulpits, confessionals, church furniture, panelling, etc. He also works for the National Lottery and for various municipal authorities on, for example, restoration work in town halls (cabinets, panelling and decoration) and on monuments.
Peter Taeymans is also a specialist in camera inspection of woodwork, a subject on which he has published. He has also taken part in an international restoration project in Croatia. Peter Taeymans is a member of the BRK-APROA.
