Arnolfini - est 1961

FREE workshop, no need to book, just drop in! (donations welcome)

Let’s Make Art welcomes everyone to a day of workshops exploring Zoma Museum and School through pattern, shape, texture, touch, smell and sound. 

Zoma Museum and School in Addis Ababa is a place where children learn through making connections with the land and with each other. It has been imagined and brought to life by Meskerem Assegued and Elias Sime. In this special green pocket of the city nature is a teacher, a safe place and a grounding force. The buildings are covered with detailed organic patterns made with cob which act as a visual way to tell stories, not just a building material.

In July 2023 Let’s Make Art travelled to Ethiopia with Arnolfini and ran workshops with the children at Zoma School. We will be sharing some elements of these workshops in our Bristol workshops at Arnolfini this half term.

Tuesday 24th October 11am – 1pm and 2pm-4pm
