Fausto Melotti was very inspired by music and mythical characters, one of which was the ancient Greek legend Orpheus who charmed all living things by playing his golden Lyre, a stringed instrument like a small U-shaped harp. Join us for a storytelling to hear all about him and learn to make your own magical Lyre to take away.

This is a drop-in workshop so no booking is required. Free for children accompanied by a paying adult.
