The Tarves Heritage Project has enjoyed a successful summer programme of “come and try” days.

The project recently held the last of its traditional craft days for this year.

On Sunday, August 30, project volunteers and visitors welcomed Ian Matthew who demonstrated and helped everyone to make their own traditional rope and halters.

There was a great turnout for the event and visitors were able to try their hand at splicing as well as a number of other rope-making skills.

Ian has spent many years perfecting the art of halter making and has now sold more than 600 halters across the UK.

The Heritage Project is open from 2pm to 4.30pm Thursday to Sunday.
