The two-day course on conserving, repairing and maintaining traditional windows is being run by the Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre at Balmoral's joiners workshop.

It will offer an important insight for joiners, architects and construction professionals, as well as owners of traditional buildings and council planning and maintenance staff.

Traditional windows form an important feature of Scotland's built heritage and if regularly maintained and correctly repaired, sash and case, as well as other traditional windows, can provide outstanding service for decades - if not centuries.
