Would you like to make your very own Bronze Axehead?
Well, why not join our Bronze Axe Casting Workshop with the amazing Dr James Dilley on Friday 20th October 2023, in the grounds of Kilmartin Museum from 10am-4pm.
Experimental archaeologist Dr James Dilley from AncientCraft is a well-respected craftsperson who works with museums across Europe and media companies to bring prehistory back to life. In this one day workshop at Kilmartin Museum, participants will have the opportunity to cast their own Bronze Age axe head with the expert tuition of Dr James Dilley. Workshop participants will make their own mould and use a charcoal furnace to melt bronze at over 1000°C. They will then cast their axe and begin the cleaning and decorating process.
There are only 6 places available on this one-day workshop, and the cost is £100 per person for the day- and all materials are provided
The workshop will take place in an open marquee, so please come dressed for the Scottish weather.
The minimum age for participants is 16 years.
