Horniman Museum and Gardens’ Arctic Life Workshop
Where is the Arctic? What is life there like today? Is it how you expected?
Explore modern Arctic life before travelling back in time to discover traditional Inuit life and survival skills in this engaging object handling workshop.
Examining real museum objects, explore the natural resources available to the Inuit hundreds of years ago and think about how and why they were used for survival. Then, find out if you were right as you handle amazing objects made by the Inuit, consider the materials used to make them, and try to work out how they were used.
Finally, consider how Arctic life is changing; how will things look in the future?
