Practical Building Conservation is a 1, 2, 6 or 9 day program in the conservation of traditional buildings, structures and fabric, held at the World Heritage inscribed Woolmers & Brickendon Estates in Longford, Tasmania. It offers a unique mix of theory, demonstrations and involvement in practical conservation works, benefiting both the participants and the sites.
