International Course on Conservation of Japanese Paper

The course:
Many collections all over the world house Japanese paintings, calligraphic works and other paper-based artifacts. The purpose of this course is to offer those caring for such collections outside of Japan an insight into the materials and techniques of the Japanese paper-mounting tradition, and to the principles guiding the care of such collections in Japan. Through improving their understanding of the basic characteristics of the Japanese paper tradition, the participants will be in a better position to make decisions concerning the care of Japanese artifacts in their collections. The course aims also at offering opportunities to build bridges between the Japanese and the Western paper conservation traditions and to assess the applicability of the Japanese approach, materials & techniques also to non-Japanese heritage.

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

The course is open to a limited number of conservators-restorers, curators, keepers, and other professionals actively involved in providing preservation and access to cultural heritage. Candidates are invited to provide a 300 word statement describing the relevance of the course to their own working reality. At least three years of working experience is required. Preference will be given to candidates involved in training activities or who are heads of conservation teams.

Art historians, conservation scientists, traditional paper-mounting and conservation specialists from leading institutions in Japan.

Working language: English

Course fee: 900 Euro

A maximum of 10 scholarships including round-trip travel from the participant’s country of origin and subsistence (hotel and meals) in Tokyo during the course will be provided by the Organizers.
