Clay Activity: Terracotta Warriors

Sun September 22, 2019 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Discovered by a farmer in China in 1974, the Terracotta Army is a large collection of life-sized warriors and soldiers made from clay over 3,000 years ago. You can also find some incredible 3,000-year-old clay figures in our Ancient Americas Gallery. Can you spot them? What can they tell us about how people in the Ancient Americas lived? Make a sketch of your favourite object, then come to the Laura Dinner & Richard Rooney Community Clay Studio to try your hand at making your own terracotta figure!
