Adapt & Evolve: East Asian materials and techniques in Western conservation 

8th – 10th April 2015

John Jones is proud to sponsor the Adapt & Evolve: East Asian materials and techniques in Western conservation Conference, 8 - 10 April 2015. The conference, organised by Icon Book & Paper Group, aims to explore the introduction, formalisation and evolution of East Asian materials and techniques that have become part of paper conservation practice across the globe. During the conference, speakers and delegates will look into how these practices, materials and techniques have been adapted and developed within the conservation of Western book and paper collections. The conference will draw together key speakers from across the international conservation community, providing delegates with a fresh view of current research into materials and techniques borrowed from Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea. The conference will provide opportunities for delegates to take part in practical workshops and will feature a wide variety of trade stalls, including papermakers from East Asia.

John Jones exhibited at the conference to showcase expertise in fine art conservation and framing, and our state-of-the-art facilities at The Arts Building in Finsbury Park.

The two-day conference was proceeded by a day of studio visits with delegates touring leading conservation studios in London including The V&A, The British Museum and John Jones.

 

The full conference programme is available via the Adapt & Evolve website.
