Arts and bring Wensleydale Railway's Leeming Bar Station House roaring back to life in the 1920s

The Wensleydale Railway has received lottery funding to renovate the Leeming Bar Station House into a living museum and education centre. We're taking our visitors back to 1925 and we need arts and crafters to help us recreate the fine details that will really count towards making our visitor experience real and bring the Station House back to life. If you're interested in making period costumes and soft furnishings or helping to create the digital and hard copy artwork for information displays, then this is a fantastic opportunity to have your talents on public display - and be credited for your work - so you can showcase your portfolio to colleges, universities, galleries and marketing/PR companies.

Skills or experience required?:

A natural flair for art, design and/or costume making would be great, as would some experience in textiles or the history of fashion. However, if you can bring enthusiasm and some skills to the cutting table, we'll encourage and develop those skills with the help of other volunteers to give you the best opportunity to put something concrete on your applications, CVs and portfolios.
