Weymouth College Stonemasonry Thermotech

Jamie Fairchild demonstrating Thermatech to Weymouth College students

On Wednesday 18th March Jamie and his colleagues from Restorative Techniques will be demonstrating various surface cleaning systems (Thermatech and Vortech) to stonemasonry and building conservation students at Weymouth College. It is a packed day with talks about various cleaning processes and the importance of implementing good practice.  Demonstrations then follow in the barn with various materials and finishes.  Students will also get the opportunity to have a go themselves.

18 March update: Thanks Jamie for a superb demonstration.  Some more photos of the day’s events:
