SPAB – Homeowners’ Weekend Course 2011

January 13, 2011

This is a quick note to say that The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings have published the date for the next Homeowners’ Weekend Course. As usual, the venue is SPAB’s wonderful Spital Square HQ in London, E1 6DY.

The course takes place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March 2011, between 9.30am – 5pm. The cost is £160 which includes lunch and coffee breaks on both days.

The course is designed for those either considering buying a period property or have bought one and now wish to undertake authentic repairs.

I went on the course a few years ago as part of my Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and can highly recommend it. Apart from the excellent speakers who are all REAL experts in their field, you get to meet other people passionate about their period homes.

Each speaker gets about 1 hour to enthuse, educate and encourage which they do in spades!

The topics covered include:

The SPAB Approach (their restoration philosophy)

Coping with Damp, Timber Decay & Repair

Surfaces and Finishes

Roofs

Lime

Plasters & Renders

Case-Studies

  1. I did the course, it’s fantastic, really helpful. It puts a lot of things into perspective and leaves you feeling ready and armed to take a nice steady approach to dealing with things.

    • Thanks again for showing me your home. I’ve passed it many times on my rounds but never thought I’d have the chance to inspect it.
