Workshops
Nanopapers  in  Art  Conservation

Nanocellulose films, also called Nanopapers, are biomaterials obtained from various species of wood or plants. Nanopapers are also nanomaterials with unique physical and optical properties. Today, the Nanopapers are a new solution for the treatment of graphic, photographic and cinematographic artworks and documents, old or contemporary, made of translucent or transparent supports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since 2014, paper conservator Remy Dreyfuss-Deseigne works on the introduction of these new materials in art conservation.

 

The Nanocellulose Films in Art Conservation Workshops

are now available for conservation professionals who want to learn more about

these new materials and methods

Nanocellulose films can be used to mend or consolidate various types of

artworks and documents from Archives and Museums collections, such as:

 Thin paper artworks - Tracing papers - Parchments - Photographic materials - Thin textile objects - Plastic materials - Objects - Animation cels ...

The two-day intensive workshops will provide established paper conservators with a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the use of nanocellulose films in conservation. The course consists primarily of hands-on activities, but will also include a lecture, group discussions, examination of various nanocellulose films, the making of some films (MFC and MFC-based nanocomposites), and the application of this new material on a selection of graphic artworks and documents.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of Nanocellulose films and their use in conservation

  • Study and examine various samples of Nanopapers

  • Learn how to make Nanocellulose films and nanocomposites in a conservation lab

  • Learn how to use these new materials in paper conservation
