Heritage Skills Festival: June 2013

Year 6 were very lucky to take part in the Heritage Skills Festival at Tynemouth Metro Station on Friday 28th June 2013. They had the opportunity to talk to craftspeople and professionals about traditional skills such as: archaeologists, conservation architects, stone masons, blacksmiths, woodworkers, spinners, potters, bee keepers and many more.

Pupils were able to try these skills for themselves and thoroughly enjoyed pointing a wall; piercing leather with traditional tools to make a wristband; decorating ceramic tiles; chiseling stone; sitting in a traditional boat and even tasting honey, to name but a few.
