The Fife and Tayside Traditional Buildings Forum are organizing a two day event in Perth to raise awareness of Scotland's fantastic traditional buildings and the specialist skills needed to keep them in good repair. There will be demonstrations of stonemasonry, specialist joinery, roof slating & painting and decorating.
The event, in King Edward St, will take place from 10am - 4pm on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th September 2017, and will give members of the public an opportunity to see traditional building skills demonstrated by local apprentices and national specialists and have an opportunity to ask the experts about any specific building related matters.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness about the need to address the condition of Scotland's traditional buildings and opportunities locally for owners to get help to do this. The event is free of charge and owners who are concerned about the condition of their building are invited to come along and benefit from the wide ranging guidance on offer.
There will be an information and materials tent where representatives from Historic Environment Scotland and Perth and Kinross Council Planning Department will be on hand to answer queries.
Secondary school pupils from Perth and Kinross Schools, who are beginning to think about their career choices, will also be getting an opportunity to try their hands at the skills on offer and see if this might be a career option for them.
The event is a collaborative event between members of the Fife and Tayside Traditional Buildings Forum, Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, Dundee and Angus College, Perth College UHI, Perth and Kinross Council and local specialist contractors TJRoss Ltd and Dalmack Joinery.
