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.
