THE COURSE

International Course on Conservation of Japanese Paper

International Course on Conservation of Japanese Paper

Japanese paper is internationally recognized as a superior conservation material. However, outside of Japan, it is difficult to gain systematic, holistic knowledge and experience in Japanese paper and Japanese traditional techniques. In this course, a better understanding of the Japanese conservation tradition will be offered to participants from overseas. In addition, the course aims at providing opportunities to build bridges between Japanese and Western paper conservation and to encourage application of Japanese conservation approaches, materials and techniques to non-Japanese cultural heritage as well.

COURSE METHODOLOGY

The course is an intensive programme combining theory and practice, through lectures, practical workshops in Tokyo and a study tour to visit traditional paper-making masters and mounting studios.
