Programme 1: Exploring Paints on Artefacts

Paints are used on many artefacts such as paintings, sculptures, works on paper and mixed media, which can give rise to specific conservation problems. In this workshop, the conservators will introduce the various types of paints, their common problems and also their preservation measures and treatment methods, enabling students to gain a better understanding of heritage conservation. In addition, the students will experience preparing and painting with egg tempera, a classical medium used in Western paintings.

Programme 2: You can Fix What is Broken – Restoration and Reconstruction of Ceramics

As time passes, ceramics are often found to be damaged or incomplete due to its fragility. Conservators would try to restore their original appearance so that they are more artfully appealing and allow museum visitors to better understand their historical values.

In this workshop, students will be able to learn the conservation of ceramics through practicing different processes of restoring damaged ceramics, including joining, gap filling and in-painting.
