Introduction to lime in historic buildings

22 September 2018 at 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Lime in its various forms as mortar, render, plaster and paint forms the bread and butter of conserving traditionally constructed building. You will be introduced to what lime is through the lime cycle, gain an understanding of why it is the appropriate material for historic buildings and what goes wrong when you don’t use it. There will be the chance to get hands on experience of lime mortar pointing, including mortar mixing.

Kathryn Moore from Heritage Lincolnshire leads this course with lime specialist Jeremy McArdle.
