This day course is aimed at those who are interested in or involved with traditional timber repairs and are looking to learn more about historic carpentry, identifying defects, understanding when repairs are needed and how to approach repairs effectively.
The day is divided into three parts:
The first session will comprise of two talks which explore how to identify if and when repairs are needed and what repair methods might be appropriate to heavy carpentry. The second session will allow students the opportunity to see examples of timbers and the tools best suited to repair them up close.
