Nestorian Crosses Workshop


The University Museum and Art Gallery’s collection of Nestorian crosses contains numerous mysteries. Discussion continues about their function, style and designs, as well as the historical and cultural aspects of the bronze ornaments. In this workshop, the instructor will speak about the story behind the mysteries, and participants will learn about the characteristics of the Nestorian crosses from a craftsman’s point-of-view, while getting to make their own pewter ornaments.

Clay Workshop

As a way to highlight UMAG’s permanent collection of ceramics, each participant will learn how to hand sculpt a stoneware container. The instructor will explain basic clay building techniques, glaze applications and pattern design. He will compare Neolithic age ceramics with those from the Song and Han dynasty in terms of their form and pattern. Please bring your own container to take away your work. The dimensions of the ceramic piece should be approximately 25 x 15 x 15 cm
