“Anansi Spider” Craft Making in The Three Hares Gallery

Join us for a free and fun spider craft-making in Three Hares Gallery, during opening hours. Any creations you make, you can take home!

Have you ever heard of the spider named Anansi?  This name was given to the tricky and greedy spider that is one of the most important characters of West African folktale. He uses his cunning guile to try to get what he wants. It is thought that Anansi was originally found in stories from the Ashanti and then the Akan people in Ghana, and from there the stories spread through West Africa.

The Sierra Leone: Sierra-ously Surprising exhibition will be on show in The Three Hares Gallery, which includes traditional African tales and story books for children to read. PLUS, the Cowper & Newton Museum will be transformed for “Dicken’s of a Christmas” on the same day, so there is plenty to see and do!
