Join us for our next practical one day course in 2017 and gain "hands-on" experience in using traditional lime and techniques to repair and maintain old buildings. Our approach is to create a relaxed environment where you will enjoy learning, with ample opportunity for discussion in the breaks. Course numbers are limited to ensure individual attention and are held on the last Friday of each month from March to November.


For each session there is a practical demonstration and then participants are encouraged to have a go themselves, with guidance at hand. All tools and materials are provided but please bring protective clothing and wellington boots.

"Dear Eve and Ben

I would like to say how much I enjoyed the re-pointing course yesterday and how valuable I found it. I have looked at all my brickwork issues with new eyes today.  Richard was an excellent tutor - kind and knowledgeable.

The venue, the hospitality and the materials/tools provided were all wonderful."
