This course has been organised as a result of feedback gathered from
last year's introduction to japanning course, but conservators who
have a background and knowledge in the use of paint and varnish are
invited to attend.

As before, the course will be delivered by Alex Schouvaloff, who has
extensive teaching experience at London Metropolitan University,
City and Guilds of London Art School and West Dean College.  Alex is
a Senior Lecturer at London Metropolitan and Head of Wood
Conservation at C&G. He also has a studio in South East London which
specialises in the restoration and conservation of japanned and
lacquered artefacts.

The course will be practical based and attendees are strongly
advised to arrive with an object in need of treatment.  In addition
to the primary task of working on objects, some lectures and
demonstrations will be given. The concept is not necessarily to
leave with a complete conservation or restoration treatment in
place,but to build your knowledge and confidence so that you can
continue to work on your object and tackle others. Japanning also
benefits from being an excellent vehicle to bring a number of
transferable skills to the table

What to bring: Attendees are strongly advised to bring an object to
work on.  Please email Alex with photographs of your objects and he
can advise if suitable.Alex will have many materials and sundries
onsite, but please bring your own brushes, resins, cleaning
materials and anything else you think might be useful.

The venue is a conservation studio situated next to London Fields
with easy transport connections. It is within a 10 minute walking
distance from Bethnal Green-central line tube or a 5 minute walk
from London Fields main-line trains from Liverpool St. Station. The
fully equipped studio space has excellent natural light and has
enough bench space to accommodate 10 people. On site is an excellent
cafe where morning coffee, a light lunch and afternoon tea have been
included in the overall price.
