Explore the diversity of Africa in this exciting hands-on workshop. They can tailor this workshop – when booking, please let them know which African country or region you are studying.

Discover the diversity of Africa in this exciting hands-on workshop. Visit the largest market in Ghana’s capital Accra, try on clothes, play a ‘talking’ drum and buy local food. Play with African toys and try to spot the recycled materials used to make them. Explore Maasai people’s traditional way of life, their home and the animals that live there.

After a short introduction to vastness of the African continent, all students will explore three stations: roleplay at Makola market; engage with African toys through play; explore Maasai objects and savanna animals. They will finish by discussing what they’ve learned through hands-on object handling at each station.

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
