harriak: complementary activities of the Xena exhibition
Children’s clay mermaid workshop
- 12:00-13:30 h Children’s clay mermaid workshop in the garden of Palacio Horcasitas (1st part)
- 17:00- 17:45 h The workshop continues on the banks of the Kadagua river (2nd part).
The workshop is led by Ainhoa Lekerika and is designed for children. Harriak mediator Susana Talayero will accompany and assist the artist throughout the workshop.
The workshop consists of 15 children moulding white clay figures of mermaids relating to Ainhoa’s own offering that follows her work exhibited in Palacio Horcasitas. The children will visit said exhibition with the artist and mediator before beginning the workshop. In the palace’s garden, they will mould mermaid figures that they will leave to dry (in different places around the garden) until 17h, when the group of children, the artist, and the mediator will go down to the banks of the river to release their clay mermaids into the river’s current, if the children choose to.
