Study, Use and Conservation of Lime

29 October – 1 November 2018

Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
AIM
The course will introduce some of the key philosophical issues and practical challenges which arise in the use and conservation of lime in historic buildings.
Content
Lime is one of the primary materials used traditionally in the construction of innumerable historic buildings. The range of buildings varies from modest vernacular dwellings to high palatial complexes. It is therefore critical to understand the building limes and examine the issues which arise in the conservation of lime in historic buildings. A four-day course is designed to provide an understanding on the preparation and use of lime in a historic building. The course will deal with various stages of lime preparation, slaking, sieving and mixing. The theory behind understanding and applying lime will be supported by illustrative discussions and practical hands-on session at site. This practical training course will be held at  sites in Bhopal. This will help illustrate a range of problems in-situ and discuss these issues with experts on building limes, fellow participants and traditional lime masons working at site. A guided tour of the site will demonstrate how some of the issues and problems of lime conservation are being addressed at this particular building. Specially designed practical sessions will provide a unique opportunity for participants to work alongside traditional craftspeople and gain hands-on experience of working with lime mortars.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course the participants should
  • develop an understanding of building limes,
  • assess the problems and issues associated with lime in buildings,
  • gain introduction to some of the key approaches and techniques to the conservation of lime,
  • start thinking critically about the present and future of traditional building craft skills, especially those related to the use of lime.
Speakers
The course will be taught by the staff at INTACH and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the course.

Heritage, People and Law

14 November 2018

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi
Aim
The broad aim of this master class is to introduce the participants to the understanding of heritage regulations and policies related to protected and unprotected heritage sites and interpreting them to implement and make a strong case for protection and preservation. 
Contents
India is a diverse country with vast heritage. People from different countries, religions, cultures, dynasties have peacefully co-existed in India for several centuries. It has shaped up India’s large and unique heritage. However, there are currently about 3650 ancient monuments and archaeological sites and remains under the protection of Archaeological Survey of India. To make the situation worse, the heritage falling in the more popular areas are in good upkeep, but the heritage in remote towns and villages are not even maintained properly. With sudden “development”, the natural and built environment has been under tremendous pressure; hence a lot has been destroyed already. Heritage protection through legislation and regulation is probably one of the reasonable way to preserve heritage.  The need for understanding of Acts, Laws, Legislation, Regulation and Public Interest Litigation as a tool to conservation has led to the development of this master class.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this Master class the participants will be able to:
  • develop an understanding of the Heritage Legislation and Regulations
  • gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with various nuances of heritage
  • develop basic knowledge of the approaches to legal aspects in conservation
  • start thinking critically about the present and future of heritage in the view of legislation and policies
Speakers
The Master Class will be taught by the staff at INTACH Heritage Academy and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the Master Class.
