The exploration of a religious artefact from one of the world’s religions can be an exciting, stimulating and multi-sensory experience. They are an accessible way of introducing or developing an understanding of a faith or a particular religious concept. The Resources Centre can offer training for anyone interested in exploring how the artefacts of a particular tradition express and illustrate the beliefs, values and lifestyle of adherents.
Training is by appointment and queries may be submitted via the form below:
