The National Archaeology Museum invites families to learn about ancient art by making their own craftwork.

The activity has two parts: a guided tour of the exhibition halls where we will take a took at several related objects; then a hands-on session in which the adults and the children will experiment together to make their own creations.

When I grow up I want to be... a potter. Sensory experience is the foundation of this activity in the craft stations, where you can replicate and decorate Prehistoric art, build Iberian vessels or mould Roman bowls.  Two-hour workshop for children aged 8-9 years of age accompanied (maximum of two) by an adult.

(1 October, 22 October and 3 December at 5 pm).

When I grow up I want to be... a mosaic artist. First you will see the Roman mosaics, their techniques for making them, their decorative images... Then, you'll make your own mosaic using the same techniques and materials that the Roman artists used. Two and a half hour workshop for children aged 9 to 11 years of age, each accompanied by an adult.

(5 November and 10 December at 5 pm).

When I grow up I want to be... a weaver. Through different objects and materials and the reconstruction of an Iberian loom, children discover how textile fibres were obtained, how fabrics were made, and what they were used for. They will then be able to put into practice what they’ve learned, by making a textile sample. Two and a half hour workshop for children aged 9-11 years of age accompanied (maximum of two) by an adult.

(15 October at 5 pm).
