'Experience day on a traditional pole lathe'

'Experience day on a traditional pole lathe'

star-5
This is a unique opportunity to pick up a heritage craft from a professional turner. Pole lathe turning is increasingly popular and bowl turning experiences a 'renaissance'. It is a real, hands-on skill that has tarvelled through history till the present day. To create something useable and useful is an absolute joy, something that is only toped by the fact that is made from wood and not from plastic. I can accomodate up to two participants at the moment. One-to-ones however, is the best ways to get most out of your day.

Arty Footsteps - part of the English National Park Experience Collection

star-5
The Arty Footsteps Experience is a unique opportunity to walk, explore and draw in the Breamish Valley in Northumberland National Park. The idea behind the Experience, is to encourage the traveller to slow down and take some time to stand and stare at the landscape around them. By slowing down, you can use that time to observe in a way that an artist observes and the creativity naturally follows on. To help you draw, we provide the artist's materials you will need. To nourish you, we bring you a picnic, made up from local Northumberland produce. To nourish your soul, we share the beautiful Breamish Valley with you as we walk beside its river and explore the valley through which it flows. Jane, our artist and Patrick our guide will be with you for the whole Experience. Ingram Village Hall is our indoor base for the day if it is needed, a safe haven on a rainy day. Otherwise, the great outdoors will be our home, as you our guest walk, explore and draw on our Arty Footsteps Experience.

Roman and Anglo-Saxons Tyneside Tour

Roman and Anglo-Saxons Tyneside Tour

star-5
South Shields and Jarrow contain fantastic history from before the Romans and, today, are vibrant towns in the North East of England. On this tour, you’ll hear the story of the Roman Fort of Arbeia and the Anglo-Saxon story of the North East at Jarrow Hall. At Arbeia, you’ll discover the stories of soldiers and civilians alike – with dedications to Middle-Eastern traders, slaves and native Britons, all living together at this frontier. At Jarrow Hall, you’ll explore the story of the Germanic Anglo-Saxons through the museum dedicated to the Venerable Bede. Bede is arguably the greatest scholar of the Dark Ages, not only a monk, but also a teacher, scientist and historian in a time most believe to be violent, uneducated and unrecorded. Both sites have fantastic reconstructions of buildings from their periods, including a Roman gatehouse, barracks block and commanding officers’ house.
