Restoration workshops, with the involvement of the local heritage community, provide an opportunity to see, learn about and get to know practical issues and aspects of heritage management. The workshops introduce the cultural heritage through learning and experience. Joint consultation provides answers to concerns about research, management, and recovery. Events of this nature also serve as an alternate space for discussion where heritage theorists, practitioners, institutions and heritage community meet.
In the summer of 2018, the architecture and heritage program “Modernism for the Future” of the project Kaunas 2022 – European Capital of Culture, the organization “Beautify Kaunas” („Gražinkime Kauną“) and the “Woodworkers’ Society” („Medžio meistrų draugija“) implemented exemplary modernist door restoration workshop. During the days of the workshop, it was possible to see live door restoration works, get acquainted with the interwar Lithuanian design culture and participate in the symbolic opening of the renovated door.
