In most Greek museums, clay vases are the most usual exhibits. After all, vases are the objects that come to light most often in excavations. The different shapes, but also the images painted on the vases provide information about the daily life, clothing, occupations and religion of ancient Greeks.
The museum kit provides information on the most common pottery techniques, -the way vases were decorated during the Geometric, Archaic and Classical periods in Attica- as well as the relationship between the various shapes and use.
Copies of vases of the black-figure and red-figure technique, printed material, images, and educational games help students learn how the vases were designed and produced as well as the various decorative techniques, shapes and names.
Borrowing the Museum kit is free of charge. Shipment needs to be taken care of by the teacher; shipment costs, in case a carrier is used, are borne by the borrowing school or institution.
