Heritage Skills Courses

A new programme of short courses for adults with the aim of promoting and sustaining the heritage skills of the Black Country.

Whether you want to find out more, develop a new hobby, learn a new skill or extend your knowledge and expertise, we offer a range of exciting, hands-on learning experiences for adults, making use of the Museum's historic buildings and collections, our industrial landscape and the traditions and culture of the Black Country. 

Dudley’s new Archives and Local History Centre also offer a range of adult courses.
