'Beyond El Dorado' workshops, the British Museum

As part of the half term family events I wrote and ran this workshop which explored goldworking techniques like embossing. Families made their own Chief's headdress or pectoral inspired by objects from and information about pre-Hispanic Colombia, and Ancient Colombians' imagery and associations. 

''This activity was fab and really added to understanding the objects in the exhibition''

''It was lovely, really well put together - thank you!''

''Thank you - we come every time but this has been 'over the top' good !''
