Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Kuala Lumpur

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
The workshop will be presented by Dr. Karin Scheper, one of the leading authorities on the subject. Over the past years, Karin has carried out extensive research on the Leiden University collection of Islamic manuscripts (while working, at the same time, as a conservator at the University Library). The resulting book, The Technique of Islamic Bookbinding (Brill 2015), won her the 2017 De la Court-award of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).
The aim of this five-day workshop is to teach attendees how manuscripts were bound in the Islamic world, focusing on the predominant structure but also explaining region-specific characteristics and varieties, and the strengths and functionality of this bookbinding method. The understanding of the composite structure and use of materials will be beneficial to conservation treatments, the development of conservation strategies and the preparation of bound manuscripts for exhibitions.
The workshop will consist of both theoretical and practical components. Under the guidance of Karin Scheper, attendees will make a model of a bound manuscript, allowing them to practice original techniques of sewing, endbanding and covering a text block.

Next to the conservators of the Islamic Arts Museum, the workshop will offer place for a limited number of external conservators. for a registration form and a program please email Eliza Jacobi: eliza@iamm.org.my
