The British Library is pleased to announce the first in a series of
Conservation professional workshops.  The workshops will all be held
in the new British Library Centre for Conservation which was
officially opened in October 2007.  The following courses will run
in 2008.

Ethiopic Bindings
25-29 February 2008
price UKP550.

    This five day course will give an introduction to the history of
    Ethiopic Binding.  Through a series of practical demonstrations
    and exercises participants will gain an understanding of the
    construction of an Ethiopic binding within a cultural and
    historical context.  Reference will be made to the conservation
    of historical Ethiopic bindings.  Some knowledge of the history
    of bookbinding would be desirable but is not essential.

Islamic Bindings 21-23 April 2008
price UKP495

    This three day course aims to develop an understanding of
    Islamic book structures and to apply this knowledge to
    conserving manuscripts.  There will be an introductory lecture
    followed by a practical workshop during which participants will
    make a small Islamic binding.

East Asian Sewing Structures 19-21 May 2008
price UKP495

    This three day course will provide an introduction to East Asian
    bookbinding focusing on Chinese historic bindings.  It will give
    an overview of the problems that conservators encounter and the
    ethical dilemmas involved.  There will be an introductory
    lecture followed by practical workshops during which
    participants will produce 3-5 different structures and a
    traditional enclosure (Tao).

Places on all the courses are limited in order to provide close
supervision and maximum opportunities for discussion and
interaction.
