During the workshop, delivered by QM’s Education team, children and parents explored the exhibition together and took part in an art making workshop, where they made their own clay sculptures inspired by the work of the Chinese artist  Hu Zhijun. The workshops, which are being held from 3-5pm every Saturday until June 4th, form part of Qatar Museums’ continuous efforts to provide dynamic exhibition activities that appeal to diverse audiences, fostering an indigenous culture of creativity and innovation.
