THE summer holiday fun at Salisbury Museum continued with youngsters creating their own Noah’s Ark.

The young visitors joined Charlotte Stowell last week to step into the colourful world of clay.

They were able to learn clay modelling skills to create their own animals during the museum’s summer discovery day.

The sessions were inspired by the Victorian Noah’s Ark in the Costume Gallery.

A museum spokesman said: “It was an incredibly creative day, with suitably themed pouring rain as the back drop for ark making. There were over 200 visitors taking part in the workshop.”

The next summer discovery day is Digging with Archaeologist Chris Elmer and takes place on Tuesday (August 22).

Sessions run from 10am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-5pm. No booking is required.

Chris Elmer is an archaeologist from Southampton University, and will be giving visitors an insight into how archaeologists.
