Join us at Gympie Bone Museum to learn some basic metalworking skills and make a gorgeous pressed metal bookmark. You will hand cut and press metal into a bookmark and can use paints to further embellish it. Be inspired by the skins and scales of the Ravenous Reptiles exhibition in the museum.

The workshop is suitable for anyone 14 years old and over. This is a drop-and-go activity.
