During the last week of March some of our Year 9 students took part in two days of activities based on heritage skills. We were lucky enough to have had four specialists come into college to run workshops based on stone masonry, lime plastering, thatching and green wood working. This opportunity had been kindly provided by Stiperstones & Corndon Hill Country Landscape Partnership Scheme. The full story was on BBC Midlands Today on 31st March 2017.
The workshops took place on the college site within the college day involving 24 students. The practical activities allowed students to gain hands on experience as well as learning the theory and history behind the techniques. Students not taking part also had chance to view the activities as they moved around the college site during the day.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jen Jones, Jon Bielstein, Alan Jones, Luke Unsworth, John Munro, Neil Mapes, Dave Faye and Ned Scharer for providing their time and expertise during the two days.
