Athena’s Owls

Some creations from our lovely Owls!

Some creations from our lovely Owls!

The Manchester Classical Association’s newest project, Athena’s Owls, is a series of story and crafts activity sessions aimed at 5-8 year old children in local libraries, each with a different theme. The aim of these workshops is to get young children interested in mythology and the ancient cultures of Greece, Rome and Egypt, by introducing them to these stories and allowing them to experiment with their own ancient creations. Each session involves a different theme and a range of exciting activities for the children.


Our next event will be held at Didsbury Library on Saturday 21st April from 11.15am-12.15pm, and will be on the theme of ‘Ancient Artefacts’!

In this session we’ll be trying out some archaeology related to our theme of ancient artefacts. We’ll be learning a bit about how archaeologists work with and look after ancient objects, while putting back together some of our own (2D!) vases and statues for a display!

Please see our poster below for more information on our future events, and if you have any questions please email Kat,
