Azincourt, Pas-de-Calais, France.
3-12 months duration

A wonderful opportunity has arisen for artisans/crafts-people to spend 3-12 months making and selling their wares in France.

The Medieval Folk Museum in the beautiful village of Azincourt, Pas-de-Calais (site of the famous 1415 battle of Agincourt) is expanding from May 2006 to encompass workshops for English and French artisans.

Artisans will have:-
  • Free accommodation
  • Free use of newly constructed workshops and utilities.
  • Opportunity to sell their wares to the anticipated growing number of visitors to the Centre. The Centre receives a large number of British visitors as well as other nationalities.

Applicants must have an established skill or craft which existed in Medieval times, or a modern day development/derivative (further details can be supplied on request).

There is no requirement for applicants to speak French, although a willingness to learn would help as you will be living and working alongside your French counterparts.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity please apply in writing with details of you, your skills and your circumstances to:- Eamonn Cahill, Headteacher, Southlands Community Comprehensive School, New Romney, Kent, TN28 8BB. Fax: - 01797 367315.
