Each year we run a variety of courses providing a better understanding of Georgian/Victorian architecture and the conservation issues surrounding the upkeep of these properties. These courses have been taken by students studing historic buildings, architectural students, owners of historic homes or construction professionals.  We offer the two courses listed below or we can tailor courses to suit your needs  

Gaining the Knowledge

This four-day course, taught at intervals over several weeks, aims to provide an understanding of traditional building materials and methods, strengthen the attendees ability to interpret the evolution of historic buildings and encourage the use of appropriate building products and repair techniques. The course is designed principally for surveyors and other building professionals and is one of our most popular seminar series.

Ornamental Plastering

This weekend-long workshop-based course aims to provide an introduction to one of the core crafts applied to the construction of the Georgian house.
