The silkworm Valentín- silk tour and activity for the whole family
Attention: LITTLE, FRISKY WORMS!
Valentín, very curious but at the same time hard-working worm, will start the tour by showing us his house, The College of High Silk Art, and then through different games and activities, he will tell us how his life cycle looks like.
We will begin with entering the College of High Silk, above-mentioned Valentín´s house, where we will discover the story of the Valencian silk and the process of transforming threads into the fabric.
After visiting the museum, we will go to the Cultural Park (Park which belongs to the Public Library of Valencia), where for one hour and a half we will be playing different games and doing many new activities. Thanks to them, we are going to be taken to the life cycle of a silkworm.
Eggs, larvae, gluttonous caterpillars, and the beautiful, happy butterfly at the end… 5 stages with 5 different types of activities which are going to make this Sunday morning, a real, cultural competition between teams in order to discover the importance of worms in the production of Valencian silk.
Come and learn, play, sing, laugh, jump, crawl and crouch down… be the fastest one and reach the finish line before your friends do it in order to win a prize.
***We make only a partial tour of the College of High Silk Art, which consists of a visit to two rooms: the exhibition in the basement and the looms.
