Conservation and Restoration is an area in which qualified professionals work, however, it is extremely important to know how to prevent the degradation of objects – what we call Preventive Conservation.


Ceramics constitute a large and diverse group of objects composed of inorganic materials, subjected to high temperatures. The objects have great resistance and durability and can last for centuries, however, if subjected to impact, they present weaknesses.


In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about historical and material evolution in order to recognize different folders. In the practical component, some aspects of conservation and restoration will be addressed.
