Hidden treasures in stories

January 15 @ 10:00 - 14:00

On January 15, at the ASTRA Museum, from 10.00 to 14.00, in the Changes Room and the Auditorium Room, inside the Multicultural Museum Pavilion, the Heritage Education and Interpretation Section proposes educational activities for groups of students under the title "Hidden Treasures in Stories". In parallel with these workshops there will be a screening of a slide show (Prince Charming in Tears, by Mihai Eminescu). These activities are organised on the occasion of the celebration of the birthday of the Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu, as well as the National Day of Culture.

The workshops are as follows:

  1. The wool spinning wheel and ball - Participants unravel the wool using the spinning wheel and make a ball.
  2. The motifs on the Horezu vases: the rooster, the tree of life, the spiral. The pupils find out the meaning of the motifs and with the help of their attention they complete a puzzle in the form of a Horezu plate.
  3. Mask - The role of the mask in the winter holidays. Where else is the mask used? Why do people wear masks? Students make a mask out of cardboard with materials provided.
  4. The slate and the pen -Students learn why the priest was also the village teacher. They will experience writing with chalk on slate tablets and/or writing with a pen.
  5. Objects from grandparents' house - What objects caught your eye in your grandparents' house in the country and why? What objects did you notice in the museum houses? What are they made of? Students experiment with grinding spices with the help of a pestle and mortar and will observe different types of pestles (depending on size, shape and use).
    Participation in the educational activities is free of charge.
