The ongoing task of performing maintenance, repairs, and restoration of historic structures requires special skills that are becoming harder to find in the general construction industry. In an effort to bolster the pool of preservation trades practitioners, LimeWorks.us (a supplier of lime mortars for professional masonry restoration and sustainable building systems) is teaming up with Craftwork Training Center to administer a variety of ARTisAn Objective workshops that provide training, certification, and continuing education for preservation and trade contractors, craftsmen, and artisans. Craftwork Training Center teaches time-honored skills and fine craftsmanship through intensive hands-on training in preservation masonry and carpentry techniques. Our workshops enable students to repair, restore, and stabilize historic buildings and components. We also emphasize construction principles, current and emerging preservation practices, and sustainable materials.
All of our workshops include lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on learning and are held on the beautiful campus shared by LimeWorks.us and Craftwork Training Center located at 3145 State Road, Telford, PA 18969 (unless noted otherwise). Detailed descriptions of our workshops and a complete schedule of our 2017 programs can be found online at:
Nationally recognized preservationist Steve Quillian will join our in-house restoration specialist Adam Criscuolo (a WPA member) to guide participants through the steps to rehabilitate vintage wood windows from start to finish. This informative hands-on workshop will be held at the campus shared by LimeWorks.us and Craftwork Training Center (3145 State Road, Telford, PA 18969).
