STBF has recently established a YouTube channel with a view to featuring skills demonstrations from tradespeople.
Our first foray into this was to feature the lead roofing demonstration delivered by Steve McLennan of National Federation of Roofing Contractors for the 9th Edinburgh Traditional Building Festival (part of the official Edinburgh Festival Fringe). Due to restrictions the Edinburgh Traditional Building Festival was online during 2020 and 2021 which gave us the opportunity to video a lead roofing demonstration. The full show is featured at: Lead Roofing Demonstration for the Edinburgh Traditional Building Festival 2021 – YouTube
We followed this up with a video of traditional Scottish slating which was delivered by Scott Miller of National Federation of Roofing Contractors and can be viewed at: Roof Slating Demonstration – YouTube
Plans are progressing for this year’s Edinburgh Traditional Building Festival which we are planning to hold both in-person and online with the shows being featured on the STBF YouTube channel at: Scottish Traditional Building Forum – YouTube
If these are of interest, subscribe to the STBF YouTube channel so you will be notified of future videos of the skills required to repair and maintain Scotland’s traditional buildings.
