The Ghaqda ‘Il-Milied fix-Xaghra (Christmas in Xaghra Society) is organising a seminar about the process of clay modelling terracotta nativity figures, next Sunday, the 2nd of December, at 9.30am.
This year, local Gozitan artist Hubert Saliba will demonstrate how he uses his art in creating Christmas nativity figures using terracotta.
30 mechanical and static artistic cribs, together with a large baroque crib crafted in Naples and a Live Nativity Scene will all be on show in Xaghra, during this year’s festive season.
The seminar is going to be held at the Gesu Nazzarenu Centre, Mannar Street, Xaghra Gozo near the Jesus of Nazareth church.
This event is being organised in collaboration with the Xaghra Local Council and the ‘Gesu Nazzarenu’ Centre. Entrance to the seminar is free.
