Bricks are one of Scotland's most common traditional materials. You can see them throughout Scotland on lots of different building types, including houses and official buildings. You can even find them in the Engine Shed itself.

Come along to our workshop and learn about different brick bonds used to construct traditional buildings, using Teifoc mini bricks and mortar. Pick up your miniature trowels and build a wall. How stable can you make yours?

Additional information: Suitable for ages 6+. Parental/guardian supervision is required for the duration of the activity.

Please note: No need to book ahead - just drop in!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mini Bricks are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
