Sydney University – Conservation of Traditional Buildings

Posted on Apr 24, 2018

Brant recently undertook an intensive course at Sydney University on the Conservation of Traditional Buildings. The course involved hands-on workshops on lime mortar and plasterwork, as well as visits to Rookwood Cemetery, the wonderful Denbigh Farm, and time for a side trip to John MacArthur’s Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta.
