Turquoise Green - Art and Culture
What was life like in the castle? How did the knight get into his armour and what did he eat? Let's go on a discovery tour.
The Middle Ages and the life of the knights in the castle are still topics in films and books today. But what were the Middle Ages really like? How did the knight get into his armour and what are the names of the craftsmen who made the armour? What food was cooked and how did people pass the time? In this short lecture we will go on a discovery tour. Participation is expressly permitted, but not a prerequisite for participation.

Afterwards we will make a little knight.

Please have the following material ready:



1 cardboard roll (from toilet paper)

Aluminium foil or silver or grey paper, e.g. clay paper

Paper scraps in different colours (e.g. clay paper or coloured paper)

Pens (to draw a face on)

1 skewer (if you have it)

a feather from the craft shop (if you have one)

Proceeds are donated

All proceeds from this event will be donated to art and cultural workers in Ukraine.
