Education is a core aim as we raise awareness of wherries and their importance in local history and culture. From schools activities to private talks and public viewings, we can cater to a range of audiences.
Our education offering for 2015
We are pleased to be working with the education team at How Hill Trust, a beautiful and fascinating location that provides an ideal venue for schools visits. They will coordinate visits to Hathor, moored at their staithe in June.
Typical schools' education days at How Hill run from 10am-2pm, comprising three activities and a short lunch break. The wherry can be one of the activities, including on-shore demonstrations and hands-on activities as well as seeing the inside of the boat and learning about its history. Other activities can include environmental, science, local history, and art. Contact How Hill for full information.
How Hill also offer an adult residential course in September, featuring wherry day sailings and evening talks about wherry restoration and history. See our events listing for more details and contact How Hill to book.
