Summary: 

This course will provide an understanding of, and basic skills in, the conservation and replication of traditional internal and external plaster.

Event description: 

Rendered and plastered masonry and timber-framed buildings with rendered infill panels form a very important part of our historic and traditional building stock. Repair and maintenance can be a major problem and remedial work and specification are often of poor quality. This unique course covers history, documentation, condition survey, repair options, specifications, execution and quality control of remedial works to lime, gypsum and cement-based internal and external wall plasters and renders, from roughcast to stucco, including plain, moulded, modelled and cast work, with practical workshop exercises. There is the opportunity for informal discussion during the evenings.
