Traditional Rural Trades and Crafts Courses

Our courses in traditional rural trades and crafts are inspired by the Museum's collections, landscape and activities, and aim to keep the traditional skills and crafts of the region alive — as well as bringing them up to date with some new twists. With courses ranging from bee keeping to dairying, coppice management to stone carving, there is something for everyone. Click on the subject areas on the left to browse the programme.
