  • Do you have a brick sidewalk that needs maintenance?
  • Would you like to install a new brick sidewalk, brick patio, or a brick parking pad?
  • Do you have a brick wall or foundation that needs re-pointing?

If you are not afraid to get your hands dirty or do a little hard work, these things are actually quite simple.  Or perhaps you just want to know how and why these things work so your contractor isn’t putting something over on you!

This workshop will focus on two masonry issues our attendees have requested, Brick Paving and Re-pointing Brick Walls and Stone Foundations.
The first half of the class will address paving and the second half will address re-pointing. There will be plenty of visual aids to show you how the work is done. In addition, there will be samples of materials and tools and we will also mix a little mortar so you know how it should look and feel.
$20 for Preservation Louisville members
$30 for non-members
This is a hands-on, active learning workshop and class size is limited.
Advance registration is required!
