Bursary Recipient

Thomas Jordan

Thomas recently attended an Oak Timber Framing course at Weald and Downland Living Museum

“I learnt about and practiced roofing construction using traditional framing techniques for both hip and gable end roofs. The skills learnt will be very useful for me with work and hoping to get involved in more timber frame projects, but also for personal projects and skills I can develop and pass on.”
