Built to Deceive: English Brickwork in the Restoration & Georgian Eras.

October 8 @ 09:30 - 16:00

£100.00 – £120.00

A collaboration between Georgian Brickwork and Terrence Lee Conservation, this one-day seminar examines the development and success of brickwork between 1660 and the end of the Georgian period in 1830.

By adopting a single philosophical approach, domestic buildings of all sizes reached levels of standardisation hitherto unknown and never again attained.  Yet for some, position and wealth projection in society was everything and therefore, clever deceits in brickwork found a receptive audience.
