Join experimental archaeologist and heritage education specialist Vanessa Bunton to make replicas of prehistoric needles from bone, antler or boxwood using authentic tools and materials.
Alongside crafting the needles, there will be an introduction to cordage making and everyone will process plants to make their own cordage.
The day will start with a short talk about needles and cordage throughout prehistory as well as an introduction on the vast impact these tools and crafts had on ancient peoples.
It will be an informal talk with lots of scope for open discussion. There will also be replica and real artefacts to accompany this talk.
Guidance will be on-hand at all times.
