“Not Really a Calabash...”
Exhibition of works created by secondary school students participating in the creative workshops
Participants studied the form and shape, as well as traditional motifs that occur repeated on ceramic vessels and African-gourds calabashes. There were two series of five-day workshops over the course of four hour periods, which was enough time for the students to master certain basic modelling techniques and sculpted ornaments, as decorative elements of the vessels.
Workshop participants were awarded certificates of participation, and the best works were rewarded with a Museum gift package.
The workshops were led and conceptualised by Milica Josimov, sculptor and Milica Naumov, anthropologist.
