Our volunteers helped us at Jiggers Bank to prepare for the forthcoming Prehistoric Iron Smelting workshop on 4th July. Our tasks were to puddle clay, mix clay, straw and charcoal to line the kiln ready …for firing. Mick Krupa, the tutor for the workshop gave us tasks to do and we all got very muddy! The lime kiln was also fired to test for leakage prior to the workshop on 4th September. For more information on these workshops, see website events or outdoor learning programme.
