Clay Activity: Build a Beast

Sun February 19, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The special exhibition, Janet Macpherson: A Canadian Bestiary, is now open!  Inspired by the artist’s unique visual language, we’ll be holding a Family Sunday “Bestiary” series throughout the exhibition. Create hybrid animals, mythical creatures, and more!

The practice of assembling written bestiaries dates back to Medieval Times. Bestiaries were descriptive collections of real or mythical animals, often combining illustrations, scientific knowledge, and fantasy. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate this tradition and create rare clay creatures that draw from real and fantastical worlds. We’ll take inspiration from this dinosaur from our own collection. You can also name and describe your clay creation using our special bestiary template!

Clay demonstrations will take place at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
