Educational Programme for families with Children: Knights, dancers and birds...like clay in the hands of children

Sunday 07/10/2018, 10:30

For children aged: 7 plus

 Duration: 1’ 30

 

 

Dancers, birds and knights… recrafted by a child!

The Museum’s young friends become acquainted with our island’s Medieval glazed pottery by exploring and participating in a special pottery workshop. The programme is realized through the participation of potter Charalambos Hadjicharalambous of the Cyprus Handicraft Centre.

What kind of pots did the inhabitants of Medieval Cyprus use for eating and drinking? We discover the special collection of the Leventis Municipal Museum’s Medieval glazed pottery, and learn about the craft of its creators.

 

During the special workshop that makes part of the programme, we will have the opportunity to see firsthand how to throw clay on the pottery wheel, then work on specially processed clay surfaces using the sgraffito technique!
