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!
