Our Saxons workshop is a great addition to learning about the Saxons with a chance to see replica artefacts, weapons and costumes with well planned hands on activities to suit your school timetable.
Why are The Sustainability Centre South Downs a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
With our experienced tutors, we can provide a whole day or half a day of hands on activities.
Pupils will learn how to weave willow in a Saxon hurdle gate, decorate clay medallions, whilst learning about archaeology, card wool ready for weaving, and grind herbs to make natural medicines of the time.
With an excellent show and tell with our superb replica artefacts, weapons and costumes and a wealth of detailed knowledge all about Saxon life. This day guarantees to bring the subject alive!
