The Textile Workshop

Work of the Restoration Workshop

The focus of the workshop is the conservation, care, restoration and presentation of the comprehensive Brandenburg textile collection. Alongside this, historical textiles from external owners are restored, such as museum collections, items protected under monumental preservation, archaeological items (such as grave finds) and items from other sources including church parishes.
