The eight-strong team from East Norfolk Sixth Form College has travelled to a remote area to learn restoration techniques.

Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust has been using a remote and derelict farmhouse for training in conservation, surveying, architecture and art for four years.

Each year the trust organises and runs a number of workshops which attract participants from across the world. Lyndsay Carlyon, curriculum team leader at EN, said: “It is going to be a wonderful and memorable experience for students who will develop creative skills as well as an insight into other arts and cultures. I look forward to seeing what the students produce and how they apply this experience to their practice.’

Funding for the project came from the Headley Trust.

Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust is a registered charity which works to preserve heritage and culture and to provide training and engagement opportunities.
