Explore with Me: Textiles & Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egyptian textiles appear in museums all across the world, from mummy wrappings to diaphanous flowing white robes and even colourful early medieval garments, but how much do we really know about them?

We will experiment with the possibility of dyeing linen and explore the effectiveness of plant dyes, learn how flax was harvested, how ancient looms were set up, and even make thread without spinning.

You are welcome to take part in the experiments with me as we investigate together each week, or watch and discover what we learn as the results come in. I don’t promise to give you all the answers, but rather this is an invitation for you to explore with me.

Only a few weeks left on this experimental Zoom course

3pm – 5pm every Thursday until November 25th 

Email our Curator to book your place today!

The aim is to inform, educate, raise awareness, and to encourage deeper interdisciplinary engagement because – we need to talk.
