In partnership with the University of Florida Preservation Institute: Nantucket, NCPTT will offer a one-week workshop on masonry conservation and traditional lime mortars in Nantucket, Massachusetts, August 1-7, 2010.  Participants will work with skilled and experienced masons to undertake the repair of an early-nineteenth-century structure associated with Nantucket’s famed whaling industry.  The hands-on workshop will include assessment of existing conditions, site preparation, removal of inappropriate mortar, cleaning of joints, filling joints neatly, and final dressing of joints. Participants will have two free days to explore and enjoy the island. This workshop is open to preservationists, architects, students, masons and others interested in learning more about masonry conservation and lime mortars.

    I am interested and would like as much info. as you can provide. Is there a cost for this or is it offset by providing labor needed? I have a Masonry Company on the Cape and have done restoration work On Cape, in Atlanta and in Charlotte. Most of the work I have done is on Fireplaces and Veneers. I look forward to hearing from you and would like to know what your projected attendance will be.
