David Livingstone Birthplace

Weaving Activity

Try making your own mini loom and learn how to make your own woven masterpiece.

Use recycled materials or yarn to create your own little glass mat, or something bigger!

Don’t forget to share your creations on our social media platforms using #BirthplaceProject or send a photo to learning@dltrust.uk.

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. Note: Please note that David Livingstone Birthplace (and the David Livingstone Trust) is no longer part of National Trust Scotland (NTS). NTS members will therefore no longer receive discounted/free entry to the Birthplace Museum.
