In the Paper Conservation Workshop, paper-based objects made in various artistic techniques are subjected to conservation and restoration procedures. These include: graphics, drawings, pastels, watercolours, posters, gouaches, documents, books, maps, photographs, as well as globes. The degree of their destruction is very different, from dust and surface dirt, through losses of various sizes, creases, tears, stains, patches, and optical and structural changes, both of the substrate and the surface layers (e.g. drawing, handwriting, painting, graphic and photographic ones). The objects we treat are of various sizes, from a few centimetres to several meters.
In addition to the conservation of damaged works of art, conservators produce frames such as passe-partout and individual protective bindings, such as envelopes, wrappers and boxes, for all objects that require it.
