The lotus flower is one of the most enduring symbols from ancient Egypt and was associated with rebirth and new beginnings. As we slowly return to some form of normality following the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, this event will be marking the occasion with some exciting activities at the Egypt Centre. These events will include a craft workshop for children (aged 8+) and families to create lotus flower themed bunting, which will be displayed in the Egypt Centre to mark its official reopening.
Object handling sessions will be available for children and adults to handle ancient artefacts, while wreath making will be organised for adults. Come along to these free events and celebrate this new beginning with the Egypt Centre. The morning session is for families and children aged 8+ (bunting making and object handling); the afternoon session is for adults (wreath making and object handling).
