Performing Surgery (Wellcome Collection workshop for 14-19 year-olds)

External Event - 16th Nov 2019

Get hands-on with medical skills that go beyond anything a textbook can teach you. Join a team of surgeons and craftspeople to explore the common skills they use in their professions.

You’ll rotate around activities and learn about:

  • How a magician’s techniques of holding people’s attention and making memorable moments can lead to better medical consultations.
  • What stonemasons can reveal about how to work with, rather than against, tough materials like bones.
  • And how textiles can teach surgeons about moving through the different layers of the body when they operate.
