Stone Age Workshop

The "Stone Age Workshop" by Marek Thomanek offers great activities for children, young people or adult groups. In addition to the basic module "Everyday life in the Stone Age", painting on leather can be practiced in addition to making a leather pouch or a Stone Age knife. Guaranteed fun for young and old!

Stone Age Workshop Basic Program (duration 2.5 hours)

The event begins with a guided tour of the collection. The origin of man and life in the Stone Age are the main focus. Afterwards, Stone Age tools and materials are shown. Everything may be taken in the hand and looked at from the proximity. This is followed by the practical part, in which the working methods and techniques of our ancestors are learned. The standard activity here includes the making of a Stone Age knife.

Stone Age Workshop Intensive (duration 3.5 hours)

In order to further deepen the knowledge gained in the basic program, it is recommended to intensify the practical part. Recommended here is the twisting of a cord and a fire making demonstration.

Stone Age workshop on request (minimum duration 2.5 hours)
