One of Manchester Classical Association’s outreach projects, Athena’s Owls, is a series of story and crafts activity sessions aimed at primary school age 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 18th May from 11.15am-12.15pm, when we’ll make ancient coins and learn about how this tiny archaeological find can tell us so much about the ancient world.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also keep up with what we’re doing by watching the #AthenasOwls hashtag on Twitter and Facebook!
