Clay training on Horn Farm with Becky Little of RebEarth

 

We are offering both short up-skilling courses and longer term training opportunities which will be open to anyone interested in learning clay building techniques. These will be based with our earth specialist contractor Becky Little,  RebEarth. Becky currently has several “apprentices” from Historic Scotland and the Scottish Lime Centre working on projects with her as in kind contribution from these organisations. This training will help future guard the earth building skills in Scotland.

Training
Our current opportunities are for possible short repair training sessions for interested homeowners of clay buildings at a clay built steading in the Carse of Gowrie over the next few months. If you are keen to note your interest in some on site training please contact our Historic Environment Officer,  Sophie Nicol  

Clayfest! in Errol will also be an opportunity for some training workshops in clay and TayLP will be announcing some funded tickets to this year’s events. Keep your eyes peeled for more information!  For more detail on the festival programme please visit www.ebuk.com
