A feel for the material

  • Comment

Hands-on tuition by a master bricklayer was part of a full day of brick learning sponsored by BDA's educational support service at Canterbury School of Architecture recently.

The day started with a morning lecture on 'Bricks and Brickwork in Modern Architecture' followed by a session of basic practical bricklaying, this conducted by Bob Baldwin of the Guild of Bricklayers. The students then had time, spread over the next eight days, to experiment with their embryonic bricklaying skills and to build their own brick creations.

The aim of the practical session is to give the architects of tomorrow a feel for the material and an insight into its design potential; appreciation of its scale and versatility; respect for the craft skills, and confidence in its use.
