Students are tackling traditional old farm buildings in Bulgaria as they hone their conservation skills.
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.
