The international youth work in Grudenberg 7 in the old town of Halberstadt, residence of aProvost, later Jewish families "Preservecultural property to touch and preserve contemporaryhistory" – For volunteers (Federal Voluntary Service), Interns (Intership), Apprentices

Our goals

Teaching in vacancy and thereby revive, - conveying traditional craft techniques and thereby preserving, cultural exchange through community and thereby enriching -describethe levels of action of the practical youth project- in which we work together. The work - for us cultural educationalunits - in the field of preservation of monumentswithinternational people, while preserving the cultural heritage, create the "built history" remains legible.

Our work

In the model project Grudenberg 7, the residence of a Provost, later of Jewish families, we relocate a teaching place outside lecture halls, university places to the vacant place, which has existed for 30 years, and include the cultural building as a teaching staff. The project with international participants – volunteers, interns (Intership),apprentices,etc.is multi-layered, sustainable, goal-oriented, identification and awareness-creating for us.

The project started in the European Year of Cultural Heritage with the event of the Dayof the Open Monument. The upgrading of the foundations and truss construction was already started in June 2018 with specialist companies in the region. The two-floors residential building, built in1698 by the Probst of the Johannis Monastery,shows in the representative entrance hall ceiling paintings with Bible sayings, adjacent aliving room with stencil painting – among other things angel heads as well as fruit garlands - on the ceiling and walls and in the hall of the 1. floorinwhich presumably still church services took place,valuable hand-painted wallpaper.

International Seminarshave already been taught with students, pupils and refugees inthe halls and living rooms with their remaining equipment, the various fields of restoration and traditional craftsmanship. The teachers of the half-timbered center, art historians, restorers, master carpenters, master carpenters/architects, stonemasons and surveyors who have studied the cultural construction, then convey this complex topic within the model project in our daily work on site.

In the practice units, closed circuits of the production and work processes are conveyed. The practical implementation takes place in tandem, together withamaster or apprentice of the half-timbered center. This division of labour creates the opportunityto get to know each other andprovides an optimal understanding for the implementation of the craft techniques.

The learning fields

The founding windows with old glasses and profiled fittings in tincasting, the representative baroque stairway and the historic entrance door from the 17th century were restored togetherwith traditional wooden connections as well as the use oftraditional rabbit- and bone glues.

Restoration of historical surfaces

The learning field restoration of historical surfaces included the uncovering of the stencil painting on the ceiling of theliving room on the ground floor. Also,colours are mixed according to historical recipes with swamp lime, quark, pigments and glue water, which are applied to the surface of the repaired truss construction when applied to paint.

Repair in sections of the truss construction

The structural support of the wooden construction of historical half-timbered walls is given by the traditional carpenter connections,so to chisel out, to plan – manufacture of mortice and tenon joints, “wrong tenon”is implemented together.

The deformation-like measurement is also shown by means ofa tachymeter and AutoCAD. The various learning fields with the size of the structure, restoration of the half-timbered construction and the uncovering of historical paintings then create a restored Monument and identification places for many who participated in the preservation.

With the careful approach and with the help of traditional techniques we use the historical structure and cultural diversity.

We look forward to your participation!!!

Planned: autumn camp - 23. September 2019

--> Seminarplan 3. Sommercampus September 2019

--> Kurzbeschreibung Seminarinhalte

In the framework of the "Sharing Heritage – Sharing Work – Sharing Community" Project, the Deutsches Fachwerkzentrum is conducting a 9-day seminar camp from 23.09. to 02.10.2019 for trainees and students with the emphasis on “Traditional craftsmen’s techniques” in joinery, stonemasonry, painting and restoration craft work and the deformation-true tacheometric building survey, underpinned by a series of lectures and excursions.

At present we are at the seminar planning stage and simultaneously in search of seminar participants. Please contact Claudia Hennrich, Telefon: 0160 - 905 415 42, E-Mail: deutsches-fachwerkzentrum-qlb@t-online.de.

2. Summer camp - 5. August 2019

1. Summer camp - 15. Juli 2019

The first two "Sharing Heritage - Sharing Work - Sharing Community" summer camps were held in July and August 2019 in Erxleben with the participation of trainees from various craft groups (carpenters, joiners), master craftsmen, archictects, as well as domestic and international students. A further camp was held in August 2019 in the "Sharing Heritage – Sharing Work – Sharing Community" framework – a project of the Deutsches Fachwerkzentrum Quedlinburg e. V. within the European Heritage Volunteers Programme and in cooperation with tertiary educational institutions throughout Germany offering a first acquaintance with the extensive field of monument protection aimed at preserving the cultural heritage.

The seminars handled various thematic fields, such as stonemasonry work on Renaissance sandstone walls, slaking lime for historic plaster and cleaning techniques, the preparation of lime and casein paint for historic surfaces, the reinforcing of a wooden structure and the restoration of historic windows.

1. Module: “The restoration of framed surfaces”

Start: Demonstration "Slaking lime to produce lime putty ", which is used for lime mortar, lime plaster and the production of lime and casein paint in historic renovation work.

Following the lime slaking, instruction was given on the application of lime lump plaster, the exposure of damaged surfaces of the historic plaster and the mixing of paint using lime putty, curd cheese, pigments, casein and stick water based on historic recipes. Restored window frames and sample surfaces were used to teach how the final coat of lime and casein paint is applied to surfaces.

2. Module: Deformation-true building survey

Deformation-true surveying is taught using tachymetre and AutoCAD/ TachyCAD. The survey was conducted in the former library rooms of Erxleben Castle and the baroque utility building which formerly framed the castle bridge at the entry to the castle.

3. Module: Reinforcement of the half-timbered structure

The reinforcement of the half-timbered structure also formed part of the teaching programme. The structural stability of the wood construction of historic half-timbered buildings is provided by the tradition carpenters connections. To this end instruction is given in chiselling, planing, the making of tongue and groove and halving joints, exposure work, as well as the use of fish and bone glue.

4. Module: Restoration of historic windows

Under the supervision of master craftsmen the baroque windows with their tongue and groove connections, profiles, old panes and grooved corner brackets were restored by summer camp participants. The first step was to remove the brackets from the casements. After stripping the paint with a hot-air gun and a narrow-edged spatula, the windows were carefully cleaned with sandpaper and scraper. The next work stage involved the removal of damaged sections of wood. After the damaged areas had been chiselled out, new inserts of wood were glued on in keeping with the original historic grain and trimmed to a perfect fit. The inserts were finally clamped and dried. Following that, the sections were smoothed off with the plane. The historic windows were then given an undercoat of paint.

5. Module: Stonemasonry work

To start with, in this seminar the marking up and cutting of ribbing using a flat chisel and working stone with pointed and claw chisels was demonstrated and practised, as was edging with a flat chisel.

An insetting on a sandstone wall was then the second work step.

Excursions with the participation of all seminar participants

At weekends there were excursions to various heritage sites in the region. The visits to the baroque castles in Seggerde and Bodendorf covered a specific thematic field. After decades of dereliction, the buildings have been taken over by the former owners’ families and are now undergoing renovation. Here it was not only primarily a question of understanding the various renovation techniques, but also of understanding personal decisions, deep commitment and individual solutions.

Wintercampus - 26. November 2018

In December 2018 the first winter camp of the "Sharing Heritage – Sharing Work – Sharing Community" Project took place, the sponsorship ofthe Federal Ministry for Culture and Media, by the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt and the German Foundation for Monument Protection. A total of 18 European Heritage Volunteers and two students of the Hochschule Anhalt took part in the two-week winter camp.

The event locations are heritage buildings – such as a provost‘s residence in Halberstadt, which later housed Jewish families and Schloss Erxleben, a castle with Renaissance fireplaces, baroque stucco ceilings, kitchens with hearths and chimneys and library rooms in the style of Roman palace rooms. These heritage buildings that have been vacant for 30 years and now being rescued by us from structural decay, impart architectural history through guided tours and inform the visitor about the various fields of restoration and traditional craftsmanship.

Event in the European Year of Cultural Heritage - 27. May 2018

We want to take part in the European Year of Cultural Heritage with the "Integrativer Ort BauDENKMAL!!" Project involving seminar participants together with students of the World Heritage study programme of the Hochschule Anhalt-Dessau under the guidance of restorers and staff of the Fachwerkzentrum. The event location is a heritage site, Schloss Erxleben, which we are together saving from structural ruin. We demonstrate architectural history with guided tours and in one room, or several connecting rooms we present the various areas of renovation and traditional craftsmanship. Participation is open to all and, according to skills, all can work together and cooperate in the spirit of "Sharing Heritage - Sharing Work - Sharing Community" Cultural Heritage you can touch. It is going to be a day that provides space to talk about cultural heritage and to learn about cultural similarities and differences with seminar participants from various cultural backgrounds. Here the seminar participants – refugees and students of the World Heritage study programme of the Hochschule Anhalt-Dessau - from Syria, Afghanistan, China, Irak, Yemen, Vietnam, Egypt... will present their artisan skills in tandem with staff of the Fachwerkzentrum. In the other rooms, the seminar participants together with member of the Fachwerkzentrum will present living rooms from the past and, where possible, a comparable site from their own countries. Our cultural roots are closely interconnected and transcend political borders.
