History through science; science through history.

History through science; science through history.

Make Iron gall ink to write with and take home. Learn about the history of this ink for high quality documents from Pharaonic times to the present day.

Then make glue from milk – used, among other things, in constructing WWI fighters!

Lab coats and glasses will be provided but please wear clothes that can get a bit dirty, just in case.

N.B. workshop uses dairy products (which are not consumed)

Suitable for children aged 10-15


This workshop is being presented by Colin from Science and Wonders and will take place at Hive’s Studio One


This hands on workshop is suitable for interested children and does not assume any particular science knowledge. However due to the nature of practical science an ability to follow the presenter’s instructions is required. If your child is disruptive, you will be asked to come and collect them for everybody’s safety.

Children will need to be at Hive by the designated start time. Adults are welcome to stay with their children or to leave them, but we ask that they are picked up promptly at the end of the workshop.
