Athena’s Owls

Some creations from our lovely Owls!

Some creations from our lovely Owls!

One of Manchester Classical Association’s outreach projects, 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 20th October from 11.15am-12.15pm, and will be an extra-special workshop in honour of Athena’s Owls’ 1st Birthday!

In this session we’ll have the usual mix of stories and activities all with a special twist to celebrate a whole year of Athena’s Owls workshops in South Manchester – whether you’re a regular Owl or have never come along before please come and celebrate with us on the 20th October!

Please see our poster below for more information on our future events, and if you have any questions or would like to be put on our Athena’s Owls mailing list please email Kat,
