Come along and learn the basics of lime pointing. Find out which sands are most suitable, which lime to use and how to apply the mortar into the joint. Learn about finishing the pointing, which tools you will need and appropriate care once you’ve completed your project. No previous experience is necessary. This is a half day session from 9am to 12.30pm. Throughout the morning there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. If you would like to email us some photos of your project in advance of attending the course we are happy to discuss with the group.
The course is run by Cornish Lime’s MD Phil Brown. Phil worked as a builder for a number of years before growing frustrated with the lack of appropriate building materials suitable for use on old buildings, resulting in his founding of Cornish Lime over 25 years ago.
