Masonry is found on nearly every historic structure, including your old house walls, foundations, chimneys, and more. Its durability is proven, but over time it can deteriorate, especially at the mortar joints.
Join Columbus Landmarks and the Home Preservation Program for lunch and the second of our 2018 Workshop Series. We are fortunate to present Preservationist and Conservator Lindsay Jones of Blind Eye Restoration to learn all about masonry:
- What is masonry?
- Repointing vs Tuckpointing
- The anatomy of a masonry wall
- Mortar types and mixes
- How to match mortar
- How to repoint a deteriorated masonry wall
This session is a lecture format. A hands-on workshop will follow later in the year.
Parking is available in the rear or on side streets. Lunch is included in the workshop registration fee. Space is limited - hurry to register!
