The group have already visited the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace, where they have had a practical bricklaying session. In the next few weeks they can look forward to lead welding at Norman and Underwood, the lead-casters who made the King Richard III ossuary and the kind sponsors of the Scholars’ car this year, an introduction to milling at Charlecote Mill in Warwick and timber framing at the Kent Woodland Centre.
In the coming months their travels will take them to significant conservation projects, workshops and studios in all parts of the country where they will learn about traditional building techniques from skilled craftspeople who have already established careers in the field.
