Porcelain secrets and trade

Search for dragons, phoenixes, lions and fantastic beasts on our Chinese, Japanese and European porcelain objects.

Students will learn about Chinese culture including Chinese New Year and investigate Chinese contributions to world culture and trade routes.  Did you know that the Chinese invented porcelain clay for making vessels and other objects almost 1,000 years before the secret was discovered in Europe? 

This program is available as a half-day or full-day program.  Each student will make an imaginative dragon in a clay workshop conducted by professional ceramic artist.

 The half-day program is recommended for grades 2 and up however, the full-day program is only available for students in grade 3 or above.
