4th & 5th of July 2013
TOWIE BARCLAY CASTLE, ABERDEENSHIRE
On Thursday the 4th & Friday the 5th of July 2013, 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 required in order to meet the Challenges Climate Change Presents to Scotland’s Historic Environment.
The course, which will be held at Towie Barclay Castle, near Fyvie in Aberdeenshire, will incorporate presentations by a range of leading authorities from throughout the country, 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 The Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and Historic Scotland, as well as a Private Sector sponsor, a minimal fee of £50.00 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 for both days, although those attending will need to arrange their own transport and accommodation.
Please find attached a proposed draft Agenda for the course, which will provide you with an indication of the range of topics to be addressed during the 2 days, as well as the individuals who will be presenting them.
