Learn traditional hot lime mortar skills in a practical hands-on session.
Friday 13th or Saturday 14th October, 9.30am until 3pm
Revealing Oldknow’s Legacy has entered the consolidation phase. As part of this there are miles of stone and brick work which needs to be lime pointed to help ensure the future of the archaeology site. Join us in getting the site ready for its official public opening early 2018!
These 1 day workshops will include an introduction to lime and its use in buildings from the Roman era to the present day and its use in the historic building of Mellor Mill. Expert Mark Womersley will show you how to mix hot lime mortars and you will have the chance to point the remains of Mellor Mill with your new-found skills.
