What you’ll do

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 suturing and tissues with a lacemaker, bones with stonemasons and reconstructive surgery with a glove maker. For each activity you’ll also be joined by a surgeon from Imperial College London.
