The knowledge about various Asian papers is gained via understanding of the raw material, the procedure of paper making in Asia and due to own fibre-preparation and paper-making in Asian style. The resulting self made samples form a valuable collection for comparing with paper to be identified. With simple methods, available to everyone for example Chinese, Japanese and Thai papers can be distinguished.

Films and a collection of samples support the oral lectures.

The course is restricted to 8 participants. Course languages: English and German (Kurs auf Deutsch und Englisch)
