Pattern making

The list is not exhaustive and any application will be considered which shows that it informs and educates about road steam as described in the NTET mission statement:

Preserving our Heritage with Steam on the Road

Look in the heritage journals and prospectuses of colleges and schools for suitable courses. Approach people who already have a skill you are interested in to see if they would be willing to share their knowledge - then fill out the application form with all the details.
