Stone masonry conservation training


rsz_sam_0885Our tilers currently undergo training in the area of stone conservation and masonry. There is a fantastic little course that is run in an old church that focuses on this ancient craft.(drop us an email for details)

Once in the presence of conservation masons one begins to realise the absolute skill and precision involved in mastering this craft. I myself was completely humbled and realised the distance I would need to go to produce the work that these professional masons do.

Attending training of this nature also provides understanding of the true meaning of restoration along with a wealth of knowledge of old techniques and materials uses and properties. We find this type of training particularly helps our understanding of restoring old antique tiled geometric floors.
