  • Heritage Skills Conservation Work Placement

Fantastic opportunity for people wishing to learn Heritage Skills during the conservation-led development works at the Grade-I-Listed Kelmscott Manor, home of William Morris (1834 –1896).   

We can offer up to two work-based placements between November 2020 – March 2021 for people wishing to enter the heritage construction industry and will cover a broad range of heritage techniques.

Placements will work alongside an experienced co-worker so their work can be monitored and supported to meet the high standards required in specialist building conservation work.
