The Gabriel Caruana Foundation in collaboration with the Department of Arts, Open Communities and Adult Education, Faculty of Education, University of Malta is organising a month-long participatory clay workshop exploring motherhood in contemporary society. The workshops will explore, in a participatory manner, the new roles that motherhood brings and the challenges faced by mothers. The workshop is open for mothers, who are able to participate in all the five sessions, two hours long either on Tuesdays or on Saturdays between 10am and noon.
The workshop will be led by Raffaella Zammit who is currently reading for a Masters of Art in Social Practice Art and Critical Education.
