In order to increase awareness and understanding of the impact of Climate Change on our Built and Landscape Heritage, on Thursday, 11th December and Friday, 12th December 2014, the Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre is presenting a major two-day Education/Training Programme directed towards providing participants with highly useful information, as well as practical advice and guidance, concerning the interventions necessary to meet the Challenges Climate Change Presents to Scotland’s Historic Environment.
The Course, which will be held at magnificent Dumfries House, near Cumnock, East Ayrshire, will incorporate presentations by a range of leading authorities, with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of this critically important, yet often confusing and misunderstood subject.
Those attending will include representatives of Conservation Organisations, Local Authorities and other Public Bodies, as well as Community-based Organisations, Private Individuals and Professionals involved in the Conservation, Repair and Maintenance of Scotland’s Built and Landscape Heritage.
As support for the development and delivery of the Programme has been received from Historic Scotland and Scottish Government, as well as a Private Sector sponsor, a minimal fee of £100 will be charged to those attending. As the Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre is a Registered Charity no VAT is charged. The delegate fee includes lunch and refreshments both days.
To enable a high degree of participant involvement and interaction with those presenting the Course, delegate places are extremely limited and are therefore offered on a first come first served basis. To secure your place on the Course, we would advise you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, or contact us by telephone on 01888 511347.
