As part of the traditional skills festival weekend there will be a lime pointing workshop run by the Scottish Lime Centre
This popular workshop is aimed at those who would like to undertake re-pointing works as part of a renovation project or simply as general maintenance to traditional masonry structures. A practical 'hands on' training course, attendees will learn to undertake re-pointing works with confidence. This course will give a sound understanding of traditional building technology, repair techniques and the materials to use when carrying out your own re-pointing project. Attendees are encouraged to bring along images of their projects to discuss with the SLCT tutor on the day.
This course is aimed at those working or living in East Lothian. Please call our admin office on 01383872722 for further information
