The purpose of this course is to provide basic concepts of Japanese materials and techniques for paper conservation, and improve participant understanding of the basic characteristics of the Japanese paper tradition.

The course also aims to build bridges between Japanese and Western paper conservation traditions, and to assess the applicability of the Japanese approach, materials and techniques to non-Japanese cultural heritage, with particular reference to Latin American paper-based cultural heritage.

Finally, the course promotes the exchange of experiences and information on paper conservation in Latin America and the Caribbean.
