Metal collections are a significant part of the Southeast Asian
heritage.  Important metal objects can be found in different kind of
contexts, including museums, religious sites and communities.  The
workshop aims at strengthening understanding of the characteristics
and behaviour of metal objects, so as to promote sound conservation

This workshop will address the diversity of materials, manufacturing
techniques and uses of metal objects in the region, as well as the
ways in which metal objects change over time in different
environments.  Both traditional and modern conservation practices
will be discussed, with special focus on preventive actions.

The intensive training activity will consist of lectures and
interactive sessions, both in the classroom and around Phnom Penh,
with practical exercises.  The working language will be English.

The workshop will have up to 16 participants from Asia, with at
least 3 years of hands-on experience with metal heritage in museums
or other contexts.  The course team will consist of specialists from
the ICCROM network and beyond.
