Sponsors: UNCG/Old Salem/Preservation NC/NC State Historic Preservation Office
Dates: May 13th - May 31st, 2013
Interested in repointing historic bricks, forging iron, hewing logs, patching plaster, repairing grave stones, and learning to "listen" to what historic buildings can tell us?
Then sign up for this summer preservation field school!
This course is an elective course for Interior Architecture and History graduate students and is also open to upper level IAR or HIS undergraduates and graduate students in related fields such as planning, architecture, geography, landscape architecture, and archaeology.
The short summer field methods course provides an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in current preservation and architectural conservation practice in a format that incorporates lectures, demonstrations, field exercises, and site visits. Students will gain experience in assessing and analyzing the conditions of historic buildings and selecting appropriate preservation and conservation treatments. The class meets for three weeks from Monday through Friday. The class will meet at Old Salem the first week. During the second week of the field school, we will be working at the 18th century Barker House site about 40 minutes north of Durham and accommodations will be provided nearby. The third week will include repointing historic brickwork and repairing damaged gravestones at Springfield Friends Meeting House and Cemetery in High Point.
