• Edinburgh Fringe

The Edinburgh Traditional Building Festival celebrates Edinburgh's traditional buildings and offers everyone an opportunity to learn about the skills and materials used to build and maintain them for future generations. Traditional skills are the crafts and techniques used to work with materials such as stone, wood, slate and wrought iron. These skills are vital to maintaining Edinburgh's world-renowned architecture. Hands-on demonstrations will show the importance of these vital skills and provide an interesting and valuable insight into each trade.
