Courses and Workshops



The Museum Education team is partnered with the Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) to deliver a programme of courses and workshops at the Museum and at various venues within Mid – Argyll.  These courses are open to aspiring, new and existing crofters and open to anyone with an interest in learning more about rural skills and crofting.

We also deliver traditional crafts and skills workshops at other times.
