Event Details

Help us upgrade Thirlings (our largest Anglo-Saxon reconstructed building) to show its higher status but smoothing out the walls in preparation for painting!

Heritage Skills workshops are FREE thanks to lottery players, the National Heritage Lottery Fund and Know Your Neighbourhood. In return, participants agree to give one day a month towards the project, putting their new skills into practise to make things for, and makeover, our village! Find out more about the project.

This Hands-On Learning follows on from the introductory lecture on Friday Night so please ensure you can attend both before signing up.
