Heritage Skills

The Landscape Partnership is running a Heritage Skills School to enable as many people as possible to learn about how traditional skills remain vital today.

Building Blocks teaches dry stone walling to offenders on Community Payback, repairing damaged walls while passing on a valuable skill.

Metal and Stone brings local craftspeople together with students from Nidderdale High School & Community College, offering young people opportunities to learn about stone carving, metal working and printing making.

We will also be running a series of open courses for adults covering  traditional skills including:

  • Lime¬†pointing
  • Dry stone walling
  • Stone masonry

Lime mortaring demonstration

Trainer demonstrating how to finish traditional lime pointing with a ‘churn brush’

These will be advertised through our events programme
