Research on the Origins Of Historical Techniques
Burgundian Blacks

29 June until 3 July 2020

In the 2020 ROOHTS summer school, we will again offer an intensive 5-day programme on black coloured art materials. Scholars with theoretical and practical expertise in historical art technology will guide you through a 5-day programme on black coloured materials. You will receive an introduction to reading, interpreting and evaluation of historical sources. Procedures, tools and materials will be discussed while a selection of historical recipes for the manufacture of black dyes, inks and paints will be reproduced.

To stay tuned about the 2020 edition, sign up here (choice Design Sciences).
