Turner Twins: Woolly Adventure Talks
About the Event...
The @theturnertwiins share their experiences of putting wool to the ultimate test through their adventures of crossing the Greenland Ice Cap and climbing Mt Elbrus. Captialising on their scientific knowledge and identical genetics, the Turner Twins continue to test the affects of wearing natural materials like wool compared to its synthetic equivalent and how this affected their bodies during extreme conditions.
About the Artists...

Engaging and educational, the Turner Twins describe the highs and lows of sacrificing their bodies to take on extreme environments, operating with old and new kit and ultimately following their dreams.
