Education is at the heart of everything we do at the Weald & Downland Living Museum from school visits to postgraduate professional training, we offer a huge range of courses to suit everyone.


Our schools team brings a wealth of experience to organise a carefully planned visit and can provide support in suggesting options best suited to your group. The Museum provides opportunities for cross-curricular learning, and we offer Museum-led workshops, which are closely linked to the national curriculum, as well as teacher-led visits.

Adult learning and courses

We run extensive programmes of day-schools and longer courses in historic building conservation and traditional rural trades and crafts. Our courses are taught by current practitioners in their fields, who are enthusiastic about their speciality and are generous in sharing their knowledge and skills. We strive to promote the preservation of buildings of architectural or historic interest, as well as the ancient crafts, trades and manufactures of the Weald & Downland region.
