Your Lost Organ: Clay Modelling Workshop with ScientistsHengrove Park Playground, Bristol BS14 0HRSat 21 & Sun 22 May 2016, 11am to 4pm (drop-in)

You once had a placenta — an organ that was lost when you were born, but certainly not a spare part... In this free ‘science and crafts’ workshop from Green Man's Einstein's Garden, have fun modelling with clay alongside scientists from the University of Bristol. They’ll be sharing some fascinating placenta facts and answering questions about their research into this amazing organ. Meanwhile you can get creative by moulding your own placenta and adding it to our display!

This playful and inspiring workshop will be running on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd May, outside the café in Hengrove Park, Bristol (map). Drop-in any time between 11am and 4pm. This family workshop is open to all but particularly suitable for kids of primary school age (children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Your Lost Organ is brought to you by Green Man, the award-winning music and arts festival held in the Brecon Beacons, Wales every August. For seven years, Green Man’s Einstein’s Garden has created playful and inspiring encounters with science. Check out our video of Your Lost Organ at Green Man 2015 for a taste of what to expect...

Your Lost Organ was produced by Green Man’s Einstein’s Garden in collaboration with scientists from the University of Bristol and sculptor Marcus Lanyon.  It is supported by the Wellcome Trust, and was first presented in Einstein’s Garden at Green Man 2015. Discover the full story on our Projects page:
