Drop-in activity: Graving a wooden comb
Wood was one of the most important materials during the stone age. Nevertheless, there are much more archaeological finds made of stone, because organic materials need to be conserved under special conditions to outlast for so many time. In this workshop you will learn to grave a wooden comb, similar to those used at the time of the Iceman.

Drop-in activity: Soapstone perls
Ötzi carried with him a disc of limestone with a hole in it. For your first efforts at Stone Age polishing, drilling, and engraving, a less hard rock is more suitable: soapstone. Let your imagination run wild and stick around! With the help of flint drills and sandstone, you will soon turn blanks into little perls.

Workshop: Dentalium Jewelry
The desire to decorate oneself is one that humans have had since time immemorial. The shell of a snail-like sea creature (Dentalium) was apparently especially sought after in the time of Ötzi for the decoration of clothing and accessories. You can make your own Dentalium chain and chat with our museum educator Simone Bacher, about how it is that the little tubes made it from the coasts to the middle of the Alps, where they are found today in archaeological digs.
For this workshop, you will have to purchase a set of materials in the Museum Shop.

Drop-in activity: Leather pouches
The art of tanning has been known to man since the Stone Age. Through this process, animal skins and furs are preserved and softened so that they can be further processed into clothing, tents, and ceilings.  Ötzi’s clothing was also made from tanned leather. Make a little pouch yourself the Stone Age way from deer leather. To do so, you will have at your disposal flint blades, plant fibers, and awls made from deer antlers. Our museum educator will show you each processing step.
