Training

KALAM’s Craft Trade School – EOAK – is geared to in-house practitioners and their professional growth through a continuous training and skills upgrade program and to external pupils through agreements entered into with universities and restoration and trade schools.

Through EOAK we also organize talks and workshops aimed at postgraduates, fine arts graduates, restorers, and architects on heritage restoration practice and historic building refurbishment. With this initiative we seek to preserve traditional trades and techniques, a key aspect in the proper conservation of historic buildings.
