Heritage Trades Trainers

Training is conducted by Keith McAllister and his team from Heritage Stone Restorations. Keith has international training in Stone Sculpturing at the Bath Academy of the Arts, and Architectural Stonework and Conservation with the Bournemouth University in the UK.

Both government and professional organisations within South Australia and interstate seek his advice and assistance about heritage conservation. The expert knowledge and skills that Keith has brought to the Heritage Trades courses over the past seven years continues to highlight a successful partnership between the CITB and Heritage Stone Restorations.
