My Granda's Piece Tin

2 Hour Experience   |   6-8 Years Old   |   KS1 & SEN   |   Available October - April

My Granda’s Piece Tin is a special workshop and tailored gallery experience where pupils will explore the lives of the youngest workers in Harland and Wolff. Your pupils will enjoy the personal stories of the shipyards, compare their packed lunch with the contents of the apprentices’ ‘piece tins’ before taking off on their own apprenticeship journey.

Dressed appropriately they’ll make their way through the shipyard, up the gantry and finally launch a ship into Belfast Lough!

Key Highlights:

  • Learn about Belfast's Shipyards
  • Tour and Workshop Combined
  • Become Shipyard Apprentices
