Join us for the next session in our series of CPD (continuing professional development) training offered by Edinburgh World Heritage.
These are opportunities for conservation architects, planners, students and any other interested parties to learn about specific aspects of the management of the built environment of the World Heritage Site.
Our next session will tackle stonework. It is taking place on Tuesday 19 June, 9am-1pm at Walpole Hall, next to St Mary’s Cathedral in the West End. Tickets are on sale now, with a discount for our members.
As the saying goes, we aim to leave no stone unturned when it comes to discussing stonework. The event will explore all aspects of stonework from the quarry to the workshop and beyond. It will be an opportunity to learn about the life-cycle of stone, how it is utilised in conservation work and how best it can be maintained and preserved. There will also be the chance to learn from the masons at St Mary’s Cathedral with a practical workshop demonstration.
The RIAS is happy to recommend this event to its members, and it is recognised by the IHBC for CPD.
Speakers and their topics include:
We look forward to welcoming you to the event.
In the meantime, do let us know if there are any topics in particular which you would like to see offered as CPD training, or if you could offer any expertise yourself.
