The Art Newspaper wrote about an interesting teaching project. “A team of around 30 young craftsmen in Washington, DC will use 800-year-old woodworking techniques to reconstruct a piece of the fire-damaged roof of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. (…) The project is meant to be a “gift” to France and the collective effort to rebuild Notre Dame, and will serve as a living record of tradition techniques.”
