limekiln.1On the island Brac on 11th and 12th March, SEE Heritage's member 4 GRADA DRAGODID had the opportunity to participate in a limekiln-making workshop organized by the "Earth for Us", and this was Dragodid's second time to participate on the same workshop.

Limekiln is a simple traditional drywall construction for obtaining lime stone. They are present along the Adriatic coast and beyond the Mediterranean. In the last decades the need to produce lime in this kind of traditional way disappeared, modern material became available on the market and thus construction of limekilns stopped.

Construction of the kiln in the workshop was led by Master Jozo Martinić Meštrante. Despite his age master demonstrated the will and experience what comes only through an enviable knowledge of construction method and the long time spent in this practice.

Since the limekiln has been destroyed twice, this time it was built only in the drywall, but a bit of lime mortar was added to achieve a more robust structure and higher strength of the foundation.

In the afternoon after the completion of the work, professor Adriatic Kale gave a lecture "How to make friends with drywall" in which he gave a very eventful and interesting overview of local specificities in the limekilns construction.
