Event details

Thursday 19 October, 2.30- 3.30pm

SPAB Member Robert Duff and his wife Terri have been working on Felton House, their early modern home in Somerset. With parts of the building dating from the late 15th century, the project has been both a labour of love and a journey of discovery. 

Robert's Skillshare will examine how preconceived ideas and plans can change as one removes modern interventions to navigate through decades and centuries of alterations, and how a flexible and open approach to repair is necessary to discover what best suits the house.
It will also examine the harm that can be caused by inappropriate materials, the difficult choices one has to make through the repair process and how what one finds can influence and alter choices.

About the skill-share

 Run by members for members, these short and informal online sessions are a great way to learn from the expertise and experience of your fellow historic building enthusiasts. We are really grateful to everyone who has volunteered to lead a session so far.

If you are interested in leading a session please get in touch with our membership team: membership[at]spab.org.uk

These sessions are only available to SPAB members, so you will need to log in to the website in order to register.
