Art Workshop

According to ancient Egyptian beliefs, the star-crossed and protective goddess Nut lives in the sky. Nut swallows the sun, and in the mornings, gives birth to it again. This is how day turns into night and night into day again.

At the art workshop of the Egypt of Glory exhibition, we will seek inspiration from ancient Egyptian stories, characters and beliefs and create our own, modern protection amulet. You can take the amulet home or give it to someone important. The art workshop guide encourages participants to explore and consider ancient gods and demons, worldviews and myths. What feels completely strange? Where can you find familiar and relatable points? What can you apply from ancient Egyptian ways of thinking?

The art workshop is suitable for all ages, its content tailored to the needs of each group. The workshop consists of creative work and a guided visit to the exhibition.

Come and join us on this magical journey!
