This one-day course will examine the appropriate use of lime mortars in the context of material science, actual built fabric and historic texts upon lime use. The workshop will also give trainees practical understanding of slaking and mixing methods and enable them to work routinely and successfully with lime mortars of all kinds.
This will enable professionals to specify a variety of lime mortars with confidence and authority and to understand the requirements of each, enhancing their ability to successfully tender and win conservation contracts and to appropriately repair buildings of traditional construction and performance.
