Activities and Events
However, we do have several online Learning Resources for you to use.
How To Make Your Own Mill Model from Recycled Materials
David Livingstone grew up in Shuttle Row, the tenement building where Blantyre Cotton Work’s workers lived.
You can make your own version of the cotton mill using recycled materials by following these Instructions (PDF).
If you don’t have the materials then make do with other bits and bobs you have in the house (pens will work instead of paint, and any boxes will also do).
You can also contribute photographs of your completed mill models for display on our web site.
A huge thank you to our volunteer Rosa for creating this activity!
Easter Learning Activities
We know many of you will be missing the Easter activities and egg hunts, so we’ve created these activities for you to do at home.
These activity sheets are for you to download and complete on your phone or other device. You can also print them to colour in. We’d love to see your creations!
