Science Festival foraging at West Shore

Come out to the West Shore for four family-friendly activities.

Learn to identify seaweeds and make your own seaweed artwork.

Forage for pigments and mark-making materials – and for seaweeds and plants, and build a beach fire to cook a foraged lunch.

Search for fire flints and clays, and make your own Orkney shell farm game.

Hosted by Katherine Diaper, Rebecca Marr and Fiona Sanderson. A visit afterwards to see the special collections in Stromness Museum is included.

Tickets £6 & £4. Numbers limited, booking essential: phone Stromness Museum, 01856 850025. Weather check the night before: phone Fiona Sanderson, 01856 850427.

Meeting point:  Kirkyard carpark, Warebeth, Stromness
