There were trainings for wooden heritage craftsmen in Open air museum of Lithuania

The museum, together with partners from Norway (Buskerud fylkeskommune) organized an intensive 6-days training, during which was trained up to 30 participants (including 7 colleagues from Norway). They were taught and led by 6 experienced carpenter from Lithuania and 3 of the Norwegian lecturers. During the training week were achieved amazing results:  restored barn of Daujėnai homestead (rebuilt wall geometry and raise the foundation), made a small barn prototype, which will be used for educational activities. Also, the granary was moved from its old place to the place near Aristavele estate to supplement the exposition.

 

Participants faced with challenges, but coped with them very well. At the end, all participants admitted that at first it was not easy to adjust to different ways of working, but both Lithuanian and Norwegian masters were interested to gain more practical experience, so their expected results have been achieved.

Also during trainings the general public was introduced with the best practices of wooden heritage protection in Norway in the village of Salos. Lecturers from Norway lectured about the wooden houses conservation policies in their country and gave practical examples. After the lectures a discussion was held, during which all the participants together with the private owners of wooden houses discussed the most pressing issues and shared their valuable advice.

 

Open Air Museum of Lithuanian in order to preserve the wooden cultural heritage is planning to organize more similar activities.
