ART Courses - Teaching bell handling
2023 sees the start of a new round of Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) courses. The aim is to build capacity in the training of ringers by training more teachers. We are a large association with wide geographic spread, and we will do our best to reach everyone who wishes to train as a ringing teacher. The February course in the 'west' of the Yorkshire Association on teaching bell handling was held at Oxenhope and attended by 12 delegates; an enjoyable and informative day was had by all. Further courses on teachng bell handling are scheduled for the 'south' (Eckington), 'east' (Bubwith) and 'north' (Masham).
