Conservation Summer School, 6-10 June 2016, Scotland

Publish Date: May 11, 2016

Historic Environment Scotland’s Conservation Summer School provides a thorough introduction to building conservation and traditional building materials and skills. The week long course is taught through a combination of talks, workshops, field trips and hands-on activities.

Delegates are taken through building materials such as stone, lime and metal to understand how they work together to create the buildings which surround us, as well as an insight towards how they should be treated to ensure they continue to last.


The course has proved popular with a range of delegates from home owners to professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge. Tickets can be bought by the day (£100) or for the full week of tuition (£450), student bursary places are available for third year undergraduates in a building related subject.
