Angra do Heroísmo ,  September 24, 2009

Angra Museum opens Traditional Knowledge and Techniques Gallery and provides pottery workshop

The Angra do Heroísmo Museum (MAH) opens to the public the Traditional Knowledge and Techniques Gallery, located in the back of the São Francisco building, this Saturday at the regular operating hours for weekends: from 2 PM to 5 PM. 
Moreover, the museum’s Educational Service will held a pottery workshop to be conducted by Ricardo Simas, who will teach visitors the techniques of clay modelling, using the wheel. The initiative will be repeated on October 10 at the same time.
The Traditional Knowledge and Techniques Gallery, opened on March 12 2004, was the result of a project whose main goal was the organisation of the MAH’s ethnographic collections, based on the concepts of museum object and museum, understood as a document and a database.   
The space (the old warehouse of Âncora Tobacco Factory) was organised having in mind the purpose to combine the goals of a reserve (the organisation of qualitatively and quantitatively significant objects, linked by thematic affinities and functional relations) with the goals of an exhibition.
Providing the public the opportunity to visit this reserve and simultaneously promoting the organisation of a workshop on a type of handicrafts associated to the production of artefacts that are still part of the everyday life of the community on Terceira, the Angra do Heroísmo Museum has managed to turn its collections into tools that are able to provide and enhance diverse experiences, not only educational and scientific but also social and recreational.
With free admittance sessions, the “Mãos na Massa” pottery workshop privileges the participation of children accompanied by their parents.
