Ever wondered how you can turn nettles into twine or shale into decorative pendants? Join expert Chris Woodland as he introduces you to Mesolithic craftsmanship using natural materials and learn the skills needed for everyday life at Star Carr.

Chris Woodland is an experimental archaeologist and prehistoric crafts practitioner. Most recently, he has taught prehistoric craft workshops at Creswell Crags and the Kierikki Stone Age Centre in Finland. His workshops are complemented by his academic background in prehistoric archaeology. In-depth research goes into each workshop, tracing the origins of skills and knowledge back to our ancient ancestors.

All activities are free and will take place in the marquee next to the Mesolithic Hut on the main lawn outside the Yorkshire Museum. Participating children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
