With budding artists spend a morning learning about the art of ancient Egypt and have fun wrapping mummies and carving hieroglyphics. It was very important to ancient Egyptian religious beliefs that the human body was preserved. A method of artificial preservation, called mummification was developed by the ancient Egyptians. Mummification was a complicated and lengthy process which lasted up to 70 days. The Ancient Egyptians used picture words to write called hieroglyphics. It is a very old form of writing that they starting using as early as 3000 B.C. Hieroglyphics was a very complicated way of writing involving 1000s of symbolsTuesday 19 10.30 to 12.00pm and 1pm to 2.30pm  both sessions are the same. Spaces are limited so book as ASAP to book.
