Description

Mummy Mania - Early sold out event attended by over 40 participants.
Mummies are a constant source of fascination – for over 9,000 years certain people from around the world have been going to great lengths to make sure the bodies of the dead are preserved for the afterlife. The session will start with an introduction to mummies and will explain how and why the bodies are preserved. This will be followed by a workshop during which participants will have the chance to make their own Egyptian mummy – complete with bandages and organs – which they will place within a sarcophagus decorated with spells and protective symbols of their choice. Braver participants will even have the opportunity to meet a real mummy from the past!
