Kids, learn about Alexandria’s potters at this fun, hands-on activity at the Alexandria Archaeology Museum, during the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s Art Safari, this Saturday, October 8 from 12 to 4 p.m.

 

Discover Alexandria’s salt-glazed stoneware potters and the decorative patterns unique to H.C. Smith (1825-1841) and B.C. Milburn (1841-1876).

 

You’ll be able to copy or create your own take-home designs on paper, with markers, paint, or both, at this free, drop-in activity.
