Butte Citizens for Preservation and Revitalization, a local volunteer organization, will be running a hands-on workshop to introduce people on the repair and maintenance of historic brick.
The brick on historic buildings in Butte is called "common brick," and is softer than modern brick. For that reason, repair and maintenance of the brick requires different materials than that normally sold as pre-mixed products. This workshop will introduce the evaluation of brick work, tools, materials, and techniques for brick repair and repointing.
Offered annually, sometimes more than once. Brick Repair Brochure
