David Livingstone Birthplace

Junk Art Session

Date: 29 July 2022 (13:00-15:00)

Turn trash into art

Join us at the David Livingstone Birthplace for a Junk Art Workshop!

You’ll be encouraged to find inspiration in the stories and objects from our collection, including items of furniture, shields, and musical instruments. Then make sculptures out of the recycled materials. Think an old Irn Bru can has potential? So do we..!

This session will be held outdoors — weather permitting. Materials provided. Free to attend.

FREE but booking essential

Audience: 12-25 years old

We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
