Materials Theme Day

Materials theme day for schools

Our Materials Theme Day

Our Materials Theme Day explores the use of different materials throughout history. School staff are able to choose from the following workshops to create a day most suited to their curriculum. Each workshop will reference the properties and use of specific materials: some workshops also reference how a material changes when heat or friction is applied. Each workshop delivers these concepts within a historical context.

Workshops available

Brick Making (45 mins)  Butter Making (45 mins), Lighting in the Past (45 mins), Cooking in the Past (60 mins), Rag Rugs (40 mins),

Any three workshops can be combined to create a Theme Day at a cost of £350 per group of up to 32.
