Hochet préhistorique II

Le hochet d’argile, créé lors de l’atelier du 11 juillet, va être cuit. Pour le durcir complètement, le jouet est plongé dans des braises atteignant 800 degrés. Expérimentez cette technique de cuisson traditionnelle et passez un après-midi au plus près de la Préhistoire. Les participants doivent obligatoirement prendre part aux deux volets.
