This 28-minute educational video programme from the University of the West of England, made with the active participation of the BDA, is now available.
It explores all aspects of brick manufacture in the UK, including underlying geology and clay winning, the process, forming, setting, kiln technology and related issues such as environmental impact. In an industry rich in diversity, traditional handforming and open clamp firing still have a valued place alongside the highvolume, automated factories typical of today's high-tech industry. All are covered.
This is a valuable educational tool for anyone, especially those engaged in brickwork specification, construction and distribution.
