Discover the magic of African mask-making at the Museum of Oxford! Join us for a workshop led by Kulcha from African Activities, where families can create stunning masks using recycled paper and milk bottles. Explore the rich cultural heritage of African art while learning about the importance of recycling and understanding that ‘away’ is not a mythical place, but a real destination for our waste. Let your creativity soar as you transform everyday materials into unique works of art, leaving with a newfound appreciation for sustainability and a beautiful African mask to treasure.

This workshop is suitable for children aged 5 and upwards.

The workshops run at:

Please arrive promptly to your selected workshop.
