Project was planned for wider audience to share knowledge and skills about traditional natural finishing materials and techniques. When renovating the buildings with protection of cultural heritage it is usually necessary to use traditional solutions, other options cause often many problems. Natural materials and traditional building and finishing techniques as well as old buildings are also part of our cultural heritage. During the project we carried out courses where the participants could learn peculiarities of renovating old buildings and practice traditional building techniques.

The aim of the project was increasing people's knowledge about using natural and traditional finishing materials and sharing them basic skills for making renovating works. With the project we also wanted to value architectural cultural heritage and to increase people's intereset to maintain and restore it.

As the result of the project we carried out 3 two-days practical workshops and 5 evening seminars.
