Antique Repairs Sydney

Background to Antique Repairs in Sydney

Our business to offer antique repairs in Sydney started with Nick Teply’s creative journey across Germany. Coming from Bavaria, Germany, Nick underwent extensive training as a traditional cabinetmaker in the 1980s, after which he decided to pursue his passion for restoration and conservation. Nick went on to study full time at the Goering Institute of Restoration and Conservation of Wooden Objects in Munich for three years before moving to Australia in 1996.
