Tuesday 31 October 9-12 at Domkirkepladsen Target group: kindergartens, primary and middle schools.

The Reformation project "Luther roses and oaks wish".

Viborg Diocese, Kulturskolen Viborg and Kulturprinsen invite you to the third phase of the Reformation project 'Luther Roses and Oak Wishes', where children aged 3-13 contribute to the decoration of a two-metre high oak gate set up at the Cathedral. The idea is for each child to make a rose or oak leaf in ceramic and emboss them with their own small personal symbol. All leaves and roses will be handed in at Cathedral Square on 31 October and fixed on the oak gate. The gate will be both a landmark of the Reformation and a spectacular image of children's diverse and individual artistic creation.

A very detailed videomanual to the artistic process and a inspirational material to the project. There is also the possibility to participate in a 2-hour workshop with artist Susanne Ahrenkiel and learn how to shape Luther roses and oak leaves in ceramics. There is room for one educator per institution/one teacher per school.
