Research on the Origins Of Historical Techniques

beginning of July 2020 (exact dates will be announced in January)

In the 2019 ROOHTS summer school, we offered an intensive 5-day programme on black coloured art materials. Scholars with theoretical and practical expertise in historical art technology guided the participants through a 5-day programme on black coloured materials. They received an introduction to reading, interpreting and evaluation of historical sources. Procedures, tools and materials were discussed while a selection of historical recipes for the manufacture of black dyes, inks and paints were reproduced.

The topic of the next ROOHTS summer school will be announced here in January 2020.
