Saturday 15th/Sunday 16th June 2019
Join the St Margaret’s Heritage Engagement Officer on the weekend of 15-16 June for a mini-building workshop. Complimenting the popular Tower Tours, these free workshops have been made possible with generous funding from the Cairngorms LEADER. Suitable for all ages and abilities, the workshops offer a fun and creative way of learning more about traditional buildings and the work of the architect of St Margaret’s, Sir Ninian Comper.
We’ll be building a scale model of St Margaret’s tower from clay and card. With the nave and chancel stripped away participants can explore the engineering behind Comper’s Gothic Revival design. And for those with an interest in St Margaret’s exquisite stained glass, there will be the opportunity to colour the windows for the model, or to design your own.
Tours and mini-building activity will take place between 11am - 1pm on both days. It is open to all ages though children under 16 years of age must bring an adult. (Tower Tours not suitable for under 18s for health and safety reasons)
Time 11 am - 1pm
No booking required.
