Lost skills: letter writing

23 November, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Inspired by letters from ancient Egyptians, discover the art and etiquette of letter writing in an age of social media. In this workshop, explore letters the ancient Egyptians sent to each other, from the formal letter full of etiquette but no content to the gossipy about the behaviour of a wife and the rude full of insults. Then write your own using the Egyptian formulas.

No booking required.


This event is part of the series Lost skills.
