Borobudur Conservation Office are pleased to announce Borobudur International Online Course on Heritage Material Conservation 2020 (BIOCHEMCO 20)
We invites students, professionals, young conservators and archeologists from all around the world to discuss traditional based methodologies and natural products on material conservation.
Currently, the development of cultural heritage conservation in Indonesia is more oriented towards the application of centuries-long local wisdoms which have their own characteristics based on traditional methodologies and natural products. In its application, conservation based on traditional methodologies and natural products has more advantages compared to conventional method that uses synthetic chemicals. The former method is more suitable and easy to apply in Indonesia because of the availability of products, reversible, and minimum negative impact on the long run.
