Workshops, Events and Education

                                                            

 

CELT attends many events and festivals throughout the year. We offer mini workshops in traditional skills at these events and promote CELT and the work we do. If you are interested in having CELT at your next event email us. Read the Traditional Skills 2014 report here.

 

The Heritage in Schools Scheme encourages an awareness of the genius of the natural and cultural world amongst primary school children and engage them in a direct experience of their heritage.  Several CELT tutors are listed Heritage in Schools experts and are available to visit your classroom. Read on to learn about each expert and their specialities. You can contact any of them directly.
