There were many interactive activities that visitors could try. Although we arrived at 10.15 am, and the workshops started 15 minutes earlier, there were already many schoolchildren there. There was a group of international school students who were at the clay area. I requested from the facilitator whether E could join in, and he arranged a place on the floor for him. The facilitator taught E how to make the base and the sides of the clay container. S later came in to help his younger brother.

|We bought this bamboo 'tu-wet' that E is holding that can make sounds to call birds.|
According to this website, tu-wet is a hunting whistle and can produce a myriad of sounds by modulating the user’s thumb and palm. It is used to imitate bird calls and to signal a good hunt.
