The New Custodian was a project devised by artist Theo Miller to restore a circa 1840s Columbian Printing Press at LPW from February to May 2019.

For three months Gallery 2 took the form of a temporary conservator’s studio. During this time, Theo worked with young people from The Y Leicester, providing an opportunity for them to learn, create and participate in a heritage focused project. The whole project was documented by award-winning freelance filmmaker Bill Newsinger.
