Longford Academy 2017 Spring Program

Woolmers garden gates

The APT Australasia Chapter is pleased to announce the APT Longford Academy Spring Program will again run in 2017.  Masterclasses will be held at Woolmers and Brickendon Estates, Tasmania, from 28 August to 2 September 2017.

Gary Waller will lead a masterclass on carpentry and joinery repair focussing on repairing the ornate pine gates to the walled garden of Woolmers mansion, and sundry related wood repairs.

Michael Bremer-Trainor will lead a masterclass on decorative painting techniques involving wood graining and traditional painting techniques.

David Young will deliver a masterclass on lime mortar repair methods, assisted by Ray Wiltshire and Brian Maxwell.

The APT Longford Spring Masterclasses will be held over six days, and include a focussed workshop on Saturday 2 September.  This workshop will deal with the broader framework of heritage conservation practice and the role of trades specialists in achieving high quality conservation outcomes.

Participants actively involved in the trades of carpentry, joinery, house painting, decorative painting, bricklaying, stonemasonry, plastering and heritage conservation work are encouraged to attend.  Non-trade practitioners who have attended a previous Longford Academy or completed a relevant program elsewhere are also eligible to attend.
