About this event

Wattle and daub was a much used material for panel in-filling of timber framed buildings. The exact wood used for the wattle and the mix which was daubed over it to keep the wind and weather out were dependent on the materials available. There are many examples of wattle and daub panels at the Museum, some are historic, having been saved from the original buildings and re-fitted and some have been replicated as replacement panels. Students will have the opportunity to view a selection of these and other samples in the artefact store, followed by a practical hands-on session, and a lecture on the appraisal and techniques of repair.
