Brick, Stone, and Mortar: Their History, Uses, and Repair @ Arch Street Meeting House, Philadelphia, PA
Apr 7 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Brick, stone and mortar construction was a common building technique throughout the colonial period. By the middle of the nineteenth century, masonry construction was almost as common as wood construction. This workshop will introduce participants to various brick and stonework building traditions as well as to the varying qualities of the materials themselves. Equally important, students will look at the evolution of mortar and its basic components. There will be a demonstration of brick
pointing with a survey of the tools and techniques used.
