Did you know that stonemasons carve symbols or 'marks' into the very stone they work with? Follow in the tradition of Scotland's stonemasons and try your hand at carving your very own mason's mark - into soap!

See our latest exhibition “The Scots Who Built The White House” to learn all about mason's marks. 

Look at a special mason's log book which master stonemasons used to sign using their very own marks, and take inspiration to design and carve your own into soap.

Additional information: Activity suitable for ages 5+. Parental/guardian supervision is required for the duration of the activity.

Please note: No need to book in advance, just drop in and have a go!
