IN THE WORKSHOP WITH PLASTERKRAFT

One of our favorite parts of the job is getting to see craftsmen at work. Yesterday we headed over to #Plasterkraft to see how progress is coming along on the Second Presbyterian tower tracery. We can’t wait to see it installed!

NIFTY TOOLS

When patching existing limestone or terracotta, creative solutions – and tools – are required to get the look just right. This ad hoc tool gives this patch the exact ribbed texture it needs.

BACK TO SCHOOL

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it” – Albert Einstein

STRATAgists Claire and Amanda spent this past Friday acquiring some serious wisdom (and getting seriously dirty) at the APT – Association for Preservation Technology International‘s masonry workshop at Mid-Continental Restoration Company, Inc. in #FortScottKS. We can’t wait to see their knowledge in practice! 💪⚒️
