Event Description

Find out why Scotland is a very colourful place while you learn about the different types of sands found throughout Scotland.

You can find sands and other 'aggregates' in lots of different places in a building. They are used in mortars to hold together the stones in the walls, and in outside wall coverings such as render. Sand comes in many different colours, depending on the region and type of stone it comes from. 

Use different coloured sands to create a card inspired by the natural materials of Scotland. 

Additional information: Suitable for ages 6+. Parental/guardian supervision is required for the duration of the activity.

Please note: No need to book ahead - just drop in and have a go!
