Traditional Heritage Master Craftsmen
Professionally trained by English and Scottish master craftsmen who have their full City and Guilds qualifications in painting and decorating, we are able to provide authentic, traditional and historic heritage finishes. Being traditional tradespeople, we focus on the preservation of the knowledge of craft work specific to historic building technologies of both traditional and non-traditional materials. As heritage painters Adelaide, Lancaster Painters Australia conform to the Burra Charter and are able to provide painting methods that are reproduced using the same paint methods and materials employed after which painting methods began to dominate the industry. Our work is based on exhaustive and continuous research into methods, materials, techniques and styles. Each job is individually hand painted by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency. Read more. Gary Lancaster was recently interviewed by The Advertiser about heritage restoration and heritage trade skills. Watch the interview on Adelaide Now.
