All parents with their children are welcome to join us each Sunday at 1:30 PM. All workshops take one hour and consist of two parts. First, we visit the up-to-date exhibition together and we talk about the works presented there. During the second part of the workshop we take up manual activities that enable everybody to creatively use their awaken sensitivity and imagination.
6.04 MAGIC DOLLIES
During the workshop we are going to examine dollies and puppets that are used to play with, but also for other purposes, such as telling the fortune or magic. We will see what they are made from and who they show. It will be an opportunity to talk about Romani traditions, customs, stories and legends. In the second part of the workshop, we will make our own magic dolls from colourful knitting wool.
13.04 READING PALMS
Hands/palms have a rich symbolism. We shake hands them when we meet someone; waving hands signifies friendly intentions while clenching fists – the opposite. Our fingerprints are unique and make it possible to establish our identity. In many cultures, hands used to be decorated in different ways. We are going to paint on paper hands all that which makes us unique and individual. During the workshop we will think together how much can be read from one’s palms.
20.04 EASTER SUNDAY
27.04 D FOR DROM, D FOR DROGA
“Rom” simply means “man” in the Romani language. During the workshop, we will learn other words and phrases that are important in this culture. We are also going to look at letters that make up the alphabet, both in terms of their meaning and graphic form. We can see letters in different shapes and colours everywhere: in newspapers, on book covers, billboards, in headlines and slogans. We will look at them very closely and then create an alphabet of our own meanings.
All the workshops are free, but please register via: email@example.com
