Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals in Construction - 12 -13 May 2023

Description

Date: 12 - 13 May 2023

Location - Black Country Living Museum, Dudley 

Lead flashing on roofs, brass or copper on domes, lead windows, wrought iron gates, structural cast-iron buildings – these are some of the uses of metals in buildings. And metals decay. This workshop looks at the historical background of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, their methods of production, the reasons for their decay and the appropriate conservation techniques for lead, wrought and cast iron. Students will get a feel for wrought-iron repair by trying their hand at forge welding. We will be making pot hooks, nails and pokers.                            

‘Really exciting and eye opening’
