Welcome to the incredible world of Mary Anning!

Join us at Milktooth over 8 weeks as we explore the life and work of one of the most important scientists of all time, Mary Anning. Born on the Southern coast of England, she spent her years tirelessly exploring the sea-side cliffs, excavating, interpreting and documenting the prehistoric fossils she found. Anning’s contributions to paleontology revolutionised our understanding of the deep past and the history of our planet.

Each session of the 8 week course will see students exploring a different aspect of her life through a creative project, learning new skills and gaining new knowledge along the way.

In Crafternoon we will be focusing on tactile, sculptural processes that engage the senses, help develop dimensional reasoning and fine motor skills. We’ll be using wet felting techniques to craft the strange Cyanobacteria that Anning recorded, stitch soft fabric recreations of prehistoric Trilobites, carefully sculpt fossil bones out of polymer clay and much more.

At the end of term, the completed works will be curated into a small, prehistoric diorama to take home.

Saturday afternoon session runs at 1.30pm – 3.00pm from the 24th of July until the 11th of September
