    Leatherworking workshop (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 educators will show you each processing step.

    Bullroarers making workshop

    Flat oval objects made from wood or bone that are swung through the air on a cord are called “bullroarers”. The noise that is made with them can be heard over long distances. Bullroarers have been known since the Paleolithic Period and are still used today in some traditional cultures. You can cut your own bullroarer out of a piece of soft wood and listen to its deep tones whose direction can hardly be pinpointed.
