Can sacred texts help us to understand our lives today? Are there different ways of exploring texts from different religions? This workshop will help visitors find their own connections with the magnificent sacred texts on display in the Treasures Gallery.

Creative educators will work with students to look closely and learn from an array of texts. Participants will be able to view Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jain, Jewish, Sikh and Zoroastrian texts. The workshop will help students develop the skills needed for investigating texts, especially how to look closely at source material.
