Where: St Fagans Open Air Museum, Cardiff, CF5 6XB
Cost: £125.00 plus VAT (£150.00) to include seminar proceedings, all refreshments, lunch, entry to the museum and comprehensive delegate pack
The day’s course will consider various aspects of building conservation.
The venue has been carefully chosen as the museum has a varied and extremely fine collection of rescued buildings dating from the medieval period through to the 20th century. The buildings illustrate a wide range of structures and roof coverings and building materials used at the various periods. The day will include formal Power Point presentations, material handling sessions and first hand observations of the buildings. The mornings presentations will be based in a seminar room and the afternoon will be spent looking at a wide range of buildings on site so come suitably dressed for the weather conditions of the day.
The museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th-century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth in 1948.
