29th August 2018
In Season 3, Episode 13 of the BBC’s ‘The Repair Shop, Blacksmith conservator Matthew Boultwood was tasked with a tricky repair to a 30-kilo cast iron statue of the Roman God Hercules. The statue had taken pride of place in a town’s Heritage Centre, until an unfortunate accident broke Hercules into two pieces. Matthew was able to repair the damage seamlessly, and applied Renaissance Wax as the finishing touch to ensure that ‘the statue is good for another 150 years’ (Matthew Boultwood).
