In Japan, paper making and paper objects are an integral part of the
living heritage. The paper conservation practice is rooted in this
long and rich tradition. Through this course, participants will have
the rare opportunity to explore a range of conservation techniques
in the very context in which they grew and flourish today. The
programme will include practical sessions, complemented with
lectures and demonstrations at the TNRICP, Tokyo. Special attention
will be given this year to problems raised by the conservation of
wall papers.

Course activities include visits to museums, restoration workshops
and traditional paper manufacturers in Tokyo and other parts of
Japan. Study tours to major historical centers and sites in Japan
aim at further illustrating the relationship between the role of
cultural heritage today and the approaches to its conservation.

The number of participants is limited to 12. The course is designed
for paper conservator-restorers working with museum collections,
archives or libraries of national relevance. At least 3 years of
practical experience is required.

Lecturers are Japanese and international specialists in the field of
conservation. The working language is English
