Animal Anatomy: Felt Art Workshop

About Animal Anatomy: Felt Art Workshop

In celebration of our new temporary exibition A Design For Life join Surgeons' Hall Museums and artist Alison Grubb to take a closer look at animal anatomy!

Find out how different animals have adapted to their enviroment and how their anatomy varies to suit their behaviour, diet and movement. In this workshop you will create and sew a felt anatomical model of either a penguin, armadillo or chimpanzee that you can take home with you.

Alison Grubb is a recent graduate of Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen. She specialises in ceramics and has a history of working with children, facilitating a range of multi-disciplinary workshops.

For Age 10+


This ticket provides entry to the workshop for one child age 10+, who must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Animal Anatomy: Felt Art Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
