For the second time Workshop and Residencies centre SERDE is holding an International Restoration workshop in Aizpute, Latvia.

Seven day workshop has been created to allow professionals (young, mid-career and master craftsmen) to meet outside their usual working environment and solve issues relating to wood-natural decay, rot, woodworms and replacement of heavily burnt, damaged construction parts both in theory and practice. Each participant will contribute with their own skills and knowledge in order to have the best possible outcome.

All the practical work will be done on-site in 18th century wooden architecture complex which has been in a slow, thoughtful restoration process for the last decade. Participants will be introduced to the previous restoration works and knowledge gained from that.

In addition to the workshop participants will be introduced to the cultural heritage of Aizpute County.  During the workshop there will be organized guided tours to nearby cultural objects, lectures and other activities.

Workshop is a part of the Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 project LiviHeri- Living with Cultural Heritage. The goal of the project LiviHeri is to learn how to live, maintain and cherish a historical town while preserving its characteristic environment and livability.
