Release your inner artist in this life drawing workshop featuring some very unusual looking animals.

Naked mole-rats are highly social mammals that have amazing physical adaptations, allowing them to thrive in hostile underground environments. Difficult to observe by the naked eye, real-time monitoring systems are a useful tool to help us gain insight into their behavioural patterns.

In this drop-in session, you will learn about the wonderful world of the naked mole-rat and why these captivating creatures make fascinating subjects to study. Grab your sketching pens and pencils and discover their secret life under the soil.

Drop-in activity – these activities run continuously and you can drop in at any time. Please note if the venue is at capacity you may have to wait.
