Ty Mawr hosts SPAB Fellows

Date published: 18/07/2017

We are delighted to have SPAB fellows GREGOR ALCORN a Stonemason, JACK CLARE a Stained glass conservator, DALE PERRIN Carpenter/Joiner, and PAUL WALTERS, Plasterer, of the William Morris Craft Fellowship to Ty Mawr.  


During their training the Fellows experience traditional techniques and sympathetic repair in situ and will visit structures of every age, size and style. The site visits can range from brickworks to cathedrals to garden grottoes. SPAB favours a hands-on approach and thatching, masonry, knapping, pargeting are just some of the crafts the Fellows may try. On site they are encouraged to discuss traditional building construction, and decay and repair of materials. Through these experiences we hope that each Fellow will develop an appreciation of our philosophy of conservative repair, and take what they learn to their own practice.


We are delighted to have the fellows joining us at Ty Mawr and being able to further their knowledge in traditional techniques.
