The Arts and Crafts Workshops

Additionally, the arts and crafts workshops make an important contribution to the livelihood of our community. Our master goldsmith makes sacred vessels as well as jewelry of any kind (also by individual order). Customers are also especially interested in the reworking of items. In the ceramics and pottery studios, one finds a large selection of reliefs and sculptures as well as many items of practical use from the potter’s wheel. Special orders and requests are individually designed and produced.

Our restoration workshop for papers and documents from ecclesiastical archives restores old manuscripts, incunabula and books. The workshop was established and equipped in 1973-74 at the request of the German Bishops‘ Conference and works exclusively for the diocesan archives of the 23 German dioceses. Unfortunately we are unable to take on private restoration work, but would be happy to give advice and refer you to other restoration experts.
