"Little gardeners with brushes"
On the first Sunday of the month, October 3, the most fun outdoor painting workshop comes to the museum, inviting children 3-6 years old to become… "Little gardeners with brushes"! Inspired by the old gas factory, our little friends paint small ceramic pots with brushes and then plant colorful flowers in their pots, learning to be responsible for their care.
One week later, the Sunday 10 October, another incredible art workshop will take place "In the Yard of the Factory". Children play creatively and come in contact with art, making the most monstrous creations with clay, colors, plenty of imagination and enough… luck! On the same day, a gas stove will be waiting for the guests (adults and children from 9 years old) in the building of Palea Fourni.
Through the theatrical event "Theatrical narratives by a gas merchant" and with the valuable help of Anastasios Christofilopoulos (actor-performer under the supervision of Christos Christopoulos from the theater group "Windmills"), we travel to the time capsule of Athens and .
