Set In Stone Workshop 6th-7th April 2019

Thu, 07 Feb 2019 00:05:00 GMT

Cork City is renowned for its built heritage.  However, there is little information on the wealth of artistry, skill and tradition that helped to create these buildings.  The Set in Stone workshop will celebrate the rich heritage of stonemasonry in Cork City in an interactive and practical manner.  Demonstrations will include architectural stone carving, dry stone walling, letter cutting, lime and hot lime mortaring, and stone maintenance and repair.  The Set in Stone workshop will also give advice on the care and maintenance of these important elements of Cork City's built heritage.

The Set in Stone workshop is aimed primarily at heritage groups, heritage property owners and the general public.  A limited number of places are available to architects, builder, craftspeople and planners.

The Set in Stone workshop takes place in Bessborough, Mahon, Cork, on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th April 2019.  Click here to download the brochure:  Set in Stone
