Paddling in an ancient sea!

Life in ancient seas

trilobite tickling is a rare and delicate art

Come and join us as we imagine paddling in an ancient sea and rockpooling in a time before the dinosaurs!

Venue: Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, Terrace Road, Buxton, SK17 6DA
Times: 10.30 - 12.30 and 1.30 - 3.30
Booking: no booking needed just drop by and join in

Organisers and more information: our artist today is Gordon MacLellan from Creeping Toad (

What's happening?
Explore life in the Carboniferous Seas of 300 million years ago that eventually gave us the limestone, shale and gritstones of the Peak District. We'll look at fossils to understand the animals of the times, draw those animals and the corals and seaweeds they lived in. Then visitors can make their own model rockpool as a piece of ancient seaside to take home and maybe their own fingertip corals to our growing Ancient Landscape
