"Sow the seeds, reap the rain”

In this workshop children will be able to make a rain stick! A small instrument filled with seeds, which sounds like a rain shower, a waterfall. After observing the unity and diversity of seeds in order to understand what botany calls “varieties”, the participants will choose their instruments’ sound properties from the possibilities offered by the living world. They will then set off to explore the exhibitions with their sound sticks! The echo of their explorations will enliven the museum’s spaces... and may even wake up some of the works.

Book. Price: €12 (free with the Membership Pinault Collection card). 

 

  • The architecture workshop (1h30)

For 6–12 year-olds (unaccompanied). Every other Saturday at 3 p.m.

"The folds of history”

This workshop invites children to discover the unique architecture of the Bourse de Commerce and to understand its five centuries of history. After visiting the building and identifying its various architectural features, the children are invited to create a hybrid architectural structure out of paper. Through a game of collage and folding that produces optical illusions, they are able to bring the past and present together with their own hands.

Book. Price: €12 (free with the Membership Pinault Collection card).
