SPAB Ireland & BLFI Workshop 2022 - Keeping Traditional Walls Warm.png

18th June at Shankill Castle, Paulstown, Co. Kilkenny


This workshop will follow on from our successful workshop last year, which covered an introduction to repairing traditional walls (stone or bricks) using lime or earth mortars. 

This workshop will focus on wall finishes, i.e. plasters and renders, and will look at both traditional (lime/earth plaster directly onto solid walls) and contemporary (insulating cork/hemp/other lime plasters, internal insulation) approaches. 

The workshop is aimed at homeowners, but will also be relevant to anyone working with or caring for old buildings. 

The speakers and organisers will finish the workshop with a discussion/debate on the various options available and their place in traditional buildings, which will help inform owners of traditional buildings which wall finishes to go for as they aim to make their homes more energy-efficient.

This project is supported by the Heritage Council under the Heritage Capacity Funding 2022.
