Work­shops fun

The Galloway News - - FRONT PAGE - Stephen Nor­ris

Rep­tiles, ro­dents and spi­ders were among the an­i­mals on dis­play at a fun ed­u­ca­tional work­shop in Kirkcud­bright.

Two well-at­tended Zoolab ses­sions in the Tolbooth Arts Cen­tre on Tues­day saw chil­dren learn about the lives and habi­tats of dif­fer­ent an­i­mals and in­sects.

Crea­tures brought by Zoolab ranger Tris­tan Bruce in­cluded a snake, tor­toise, taran­tula, gi­ant cen­tipede and cock­roach.

Mu­seum at­ten­dant Katie Hal­l­i­day said: “These are al­ways popular work­shops with the chil­dren. They are a great op­por­tu­nity for the kids to get hands-on with the an­i­mals.

“It’s ex­cit­ing as well be­cause they get to touch dif­fer­ent crea­tures and learn how to han­dle them. Both ses­sions were sold-out and en­joyed by both the kids and adults.”
