Museums are ideal locations to improve your physical, social and mental wellbeing. To celebrate Healing Arts Week Scotland, why not explore our collections, connect with others and help reduce isolation and loneliness.

In this workshop, you will find out about some of the amazing prehistoric archaeology collections we hold at the museum stores, have a go at object handling, then get hands on with a practical pinch-pot clay activity.

This is a an opportunity to try something new and meet new people in an informal and fun environment. No experience needed.
