Priory 900 – Workshops

The monastic Priory must have been a hive of craft activity in stone, wood, glass and much more. To commemorate this, Priory 900 organised a series of workshops on alternate Saturdays throughout the season. Each workshop offered a small group the chance to work with an expert to practise some of the skills involved.
