Making, Using and Specifying Hot Mixed Lime Mortars Course

4th Feb, 2022
Charlestown Workshops, Fife

This one day workshop aims to provide an introductory guide to the preparation and use of hot mixed lime mortars, that is, mortars prepared by slaking quicklime, sand and natural hydraulic lime binders (and possibly other additives like tallow). By the end of the course, attendees will be able to recognise traditionally made 'hot mixed' mortars in historic structures and buildings and be able to develop the skills to specify 'hot mixed' mortars in relation to authenticity, performance, exposure, season, substrate and nature of the masonry repairs required.
