Museum Staff regularly run Ancient Egyptian workshops. Students learn about life in Ancient Egypt and why the Irish Linen Centre has a special artifact from the Tomb of Tutankhamen.
Did you know that Linen dates back to (at least) Ancient Egypt? They wrapped mummified bodies in bandages made from linen.
One of our most popular workshops involves creating a canopic jar, in Ancient Egypt these were used to protect the internal organs of the dead which were removed during the mummification process…and now you can do it at home!
